- Ongoing resource evaluations and adherence to forestry Best Management Practices;
- Participating in third-party certifications and controlled wood risk assessments;
- Balancing the needs of our customers and business with the protection of endangered forests and conservation of forest biodiversity; and
- Engaging in outreach, which includes logger education, wildlife and habitat restoration projects and involvement in forestry at the state level.
