Independent Validation Of Our Team’s Dedication
Forest certification is a voluntary process where a landowner invites an independent third party to evaluate and assess the quality of their forest management activities against a set of requirements or standards, typically predetermined by a public or private certification organization.
The purpose of certification is to inform consumers, customers, and others about the sustainability of the forests from which wood and other products were produced.
Certification has been an important part of Seven Islands forest management philosophy for more than 25 years, and it continues to be a foundation for how the Company operates. Over that period of time, our Company has had a long-term relationship with two of the most prominent forest certification standards, the Forest Stewardship Council® and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative®.
