Staying Vigilant Today for the Forests of Tomorrow
Did you know that the United States has more forestland today than it did in 1920? That the annual tree harvest totals just 1.3% of the growing stock? Today's forests grow twice as much wood each year as is harvested, which is a resounding environmental success story.
But that doesn't mean we can rest on our laurels. To ensure a future that stays this rich in forestland - not just for harvesting as crops, but for beauty, recreation and wildlife habitat - conservation efforts are more important than ever.
Sourcing Materials Responsibly
We harvest virgin wood from sustainable sources, use recycled paper fiber in almost all of our paper products and seek out third-party certifications.
