Sustainable Lumber Company

Posted: February 7, 2011

Sustainable by definition:

sustainable (səˈsteɪnəb ə l) – capable of being maintained at a steady level without exhausting natural resources or causing severe ecological damage.

We at Sustainable Lumber Company believe in using our natural resources as long as we continue to manage them in a sustainable way.  We are so proud to be one of the only companies in the world that finds value in something that will ultimately go to waste.  Our saw logs are 100% dead standing that are selectively harvested from areas that have been hit by forest fires or insects.  Our timber cruzers do an extensive evaluation of the areas that will be harvested.  We target only trees that still have value and leave the majority of dead trees for animal habitat and to naturally decompose to replenish the soil with nutrients for future healthy forests.

Forest fires and insect epidemics are naturally occuring events.  By selectively harvesting logs after these events mother nature guarantees us an all natural sustainable supply.
