Our Responsibility

“A world without forests is as unthinkable as a day without wood” - Patrick Moore

Spending time in a forest can be a powerful experience. The fragrance, the beauty, and the intimate connection with nature. We also have a curios connection with trees. They are beautiful and seem comforting, strong and proud. This is something we have all been able to enjoy for generations. Our duty to our children, grandchildren, and future generations is to insure that the strong connection with nature we were able to experience is available for them to experience as well.

We support efforts of selective harvesting, replanting and proper forest management. We believe in the goals of the USGBC Leed program and have FSC Certified® products available upon request.
