Forest Preservation for the Sake of Generations to Come
What is sustainability?
Sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations.
Sustainability is important to making sure that we have and will continue to have, the water, materials, and resources to protect human health and our environment…(according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency). The good news is the Products we sell come from trees.
In fact, we deal in a product that is 100% renewable, recyclable, reusable, and the best biodegradable building product on the market. Trees can be planted and grown in an endless cycle using the sun as their energy source.
Today, advanced technology allows us to use every part of the tree for products useful to society. In addition to lumber and paper coming from the trunk of the tree, bark resins, cellulose, scraps and even sawdust are turned into products that range from camera cases to medicines or drugs.
We support Sustainability by choosing mills that are committed to investing in overall forest growth, quality and productivity. The mills we work with are committed to encouraging forest health and productivity research.
