Our timberlands are not just a valuable financial resource, they are the legacy for future generations. For this reason, we participate in programs and management strategies that will ensure this legacy. Our timberlands are certified under the SFI trademark as sustainable forests. From a practice of sustained yield forestry, to the protection of indigenous wildlife, to participation in a cooperative project to develop genetically superior seeds, we are committed to the protective and sustaining stewardship of our lands.
We’re proud of our commitment around sustained yield forestry, wildlife and natural resources protection, the development of genetically superior seeds, and an annual planting program that includes about 3,000 acres and 1,200,000 seedlings.
