Our Commitment to SFI Certified Green Building Products
Canyon Lumber Company Inc., is committed to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI)
standard. The principles call for a land stewardship ethic which integrates the
reforestation, nurturing, and harvesting of trees with the long-term protection of wildlife,
plants, soil and water quality, enhancing forest health and productivity to protect forests
from uncharacteristic and economically or environmentally undesirable wildfire, pests,
diseases and other damaging agents. Becoming SFI Certified means Canyon Lumber is
dedicated to the mission of promoting and fostering the understanding of sustainable
forestry practices on all forestlands from which we procure our log supply and produce
our products. By participating in the SFI Program we are directly involved with providing
a means for foresters, landowners, loggers and wood producers to operate an
economically viable industry while satisfying the demand of the American people for
Accomplishing sustainable forestry requires a partnership among land owners, wood
producers, contractors, and the companies who purchase wood. Sustainably managed
forests provide many benefits to society: employment for hundreds of thousands of
workers, a viable tax base that supports thousands of communities, essential building and
paper products and numerous recreational opportunities.
Canyon Lumber does not own any private timberlands and relies on a delivered log sorted specifically for the sawmill. However, through the set
of principles and objectives provided by the SFI Standard, Canyon Lumber strives to
work with our suppliers to make sure they are meeting program goals for best
management practices (BMP's) and encouraging others to adopt these principles through
educational brochures and written and verbal communication that covers reforestation
after harvest, using BMP's and the ability to identify and protect important habitat
elements for wildlife, including critically imperiled and imperiled species and
communities. As a SFI Certified program participant, Canyon Lumber also supports
efforts to protect private property rights and the ability of all private landowners to
manage their forestland sustainably. Such information includes encouraging land owners
to utilize the services of qualified resource and logging professionals and providing a list
obtained from the Washington Contact Loggers Association.
As part of the SFI Program, Canyon Lumber is committed to participating in continually
improving the practice of forest management by monitoring, measuring and reporting
performance in achieving the commitment to sustainable forestry. In addition Canyon
Lumber continues to follow economically, environmentally and socially responsible and
sound practices that address, workers' health and safety, fair labor practices, indigenous
peoples' rights, antidiscrimination and antiharassment measures, prevailing wages, etc.
