SFI Certified

The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) program is a comprehensive system of principles, objectives, and performance measures that incorporates the growing and harvesting of trees with the protection of soil and water quality, wildlife habitat, plants and scenic beauty.

C&D participates in and is committed to the SFI program and expects landowners and suppliers from whom we purchase timber from to be aware of and practice the following principles of the SFI program:

  • Utilize best management practices (BMPs), promote reforestation efforts, be aware of visual quality management and identify and protect important habitat elements for wildlife habitat.
  • At all times comply with applicable federal, state, and local environmental protection laws.
  • Utilize the services of qualified resource professionals and qualified logging professionals in applying principles of sustainable forest management on their lands.
  • Ensure that activities do not compromise adherence to the principles of sustainable forestry.
  • Encourage economically, environmentally, and socially sound practices.

In instances when C&D holds the timber deed or timber contract and is working directly with logging contractors it reserves the right to suspend logging operations due to inclement weather. When working with wood suppliers, C&D will encourage operations that are weather appropriate.

For more information or to report inconsistent practices, please contact us.

The SFI label is a sign you are buying wood and paper products from responsible sources, backed by a rigorous, third party certification audit.
