What is FSC®?
FSC-logoFSC® stands for the Forest Stewardship Council. This council is a well respected association that certifies sustainable lumber. When FSC® lumber is purchased the consumer can feel confident that the lumber was sourced from an accredited organization and from a forest that is managed in a safe sustainable manner. We supply a change-of-custody certification upon order to insure that your FSC® product meets FSC® requirement.
FSC® products are widely available and increasingly sought after. We encourage contractors and consumers to consider using FSC® lumber whenever possible.
Even though sourcing FSC® lumber is challenging due to meeting some of the rigorous requirements from LEED or other certifying groups, the end product is well worth it.

- FSC® Lumber
