Naturally Durable™ Tropical Hardwoods stand the test of time. They have evolved in warm moist environments teaming with life. They are naturally resistant to a broad range of insects, fungi, and mold.
Our commitment to sustainable forestry in natural forests traces back 33 years. We embrace the principles of Forest Stewardship Council® certification. Spurred by compelling questions about sustainable foresty, loggers, foresters, environmentalists, and sociologists came together in the first General Assembly to form the FSC® in 1993.
What is Certification?
Independent certification bodies, accredited by the FSC®, conduct impartial and detailed assessments of forest operations at the request of landowners. If the forest operations are found to be in conformance with FSC® standards, a certificate is issued. This enables the landowner to bring products to market as “certified wood”, and to use the FSC® trademark logo. Certified forests are visited on a regular basis, to ensure they continue to comply with the Principles and Criteria. The performance of each certification body is closely monitored by the FSC®.
The FSC® trademark is a symbol of international recognition for organizations who support the growth of responsible forest management, and allows customers an easy way to recognize products that are independently certified.
