For FSC Wood Buyers

A direct way to support both healthy productive forests and vibrant rural communities is to use your purchasing power to choose forest produces certified by the Forest Stewardship Council®. When you choose FSC®-certified products you are supporting partnerships that extend from the forest floor and woods workers to local mills and wood products manufacturers.
