The Southern Forests Network Group Certification Program

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification is a voluntary, market-based system for achieving sustainability in the forest products industry. FSC certification is growing quickly- the acreage of FSC certified forests in the U.S. doubled from 2005 to 2006 to nearly 25 million acres. Yet FSC certification is inaccessible to most private landowners and small mills due to the cost and administrative requirements. The Southern Forests Network’s Group Certification Program will provide private forestlands and small facilities with FSC certification and technical assistance.
