    sourced from Sustainable forestry

    Sustainable forestry means that there will be no land use change; new forest growth will always replace that which is harvested. Protected or primary forest is not used, and rigorous tracing of origin is used to ensure compliance.

    Low Value Forest Co-products

    BIOMASS DOES NOT DRIVE FOREST HARVESTING

    We use co-products from timberland that is primarily for growing saw-timber. We use the parts of the tree that are too small for timber, and chips from the saw-milling process. On average the biomass is worth less than 7% of the total harvest value.
