Sustainable Forestry Practices

Our commitment to the responsible use of natural resources influences our manufacturing process. We promote sustainable forestry practices among the landowners who supply our fiber. In fact, more wood is grown than is harvested each year in the United States - over 30% more. Our structural panel, engineered lumber, and softwood lumber products are made from wood sourced through a system that’s third-party certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) procurement standard.

Resource Management

Resource Management

There is virtually no waste when we use a tree. Our manufacturing facilities utilize advanced technologies to identify the most effective way to cut each log in order to optimize product yield and maximize the use of each tree. We utilize bark and wood residuals as a source of energy required to run our operations. These biomass fuels reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and purchased electricity, thereby reducing our greenhouse gas emissions.
