Get Certified

Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification is a market-based, voluntary system for ensuring that wood products come from well-managed forests. Similar to organic certification for farmers and food processors, FSC provides consumers a way to support sustainable practices with their purchasing decisions. In recent years, FSC markets in the Pacific Northwest have grown, with more Northwest retailers now carrying FSC products.

Get Certified

NNRG’s landowner stewardship and certification program, Northwest Certified Forestry (NCF), offers cost-effective access to FSC certification through a group certificate. As an FSC-certified member of NCF, you will receive the public recognition and market access that comes with managing your forest to the highest standard in the world.

About Our FSC Group Certificate

NNRG administers a group certificate for landowners and managers in Washington and Oregon (FSC License Code FSC-C008225). Our members include family woodland owners, family-owned timber businesses, public parks, municipal watersheds, non-profits, educational centers, and conservation organizations. Group certification offers a more efficient and lower cost method of certification for small landowners by reducing monitoring requirements for each individual landowner, instead relying on a sampling technique to ensure consistency with the FSC standard.
