Counsman is an unincorporated locality in Sutter County. It is located south of Sankey and southeast of Verona, less than half an hour's drive from both Roseville and Sacramento. Its elevation is 36 feet. The Union Pacific Railroad passes through it.
The native plant community of Counsman is valley grassland. This means that winter flooding, extremely dry summers, and soil that tends to be somewhat alkaline make it difficult for trees and shrubs to grow. However, grasses or grasslike plants are not necessarily the dominant plants either. Many types of herbaceous plants thrive in valley grassland.
The U.S. Postal Service sometimes lists addresses in Counsman as being in Pleasant Grove, because they are both in the 95668 zip code. However, on the Yuba-Sutter Wiki, we prefer listing the more specific location Counsman.
