A third party certification audit regarding one of these organization's standards certifies that the products are coming from well-managed, sustainable forests. If you are interested in pursuing forest certification for your woodlot, our experienced foresters can help you with this process by developing a management plan for your woodlot and assisting you with the required documentation.
As of July 1, 2009, Sappi North America's Maine Forestry Program became certified as Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) Group Managers under the FSC® Small and Low Intensity Managed Forests (SLIMF) certificate. This initiative is designed to help small private landowners access and retain FSC® forest management certification on smaller tracts of land. If you, as a landowner, are interested in having your woodlot certified to the Forest Stewardship Council™ standard, please contact us and we will be happy to assist with this process.
