From the Land to Your Hands
Worldwide demand for local, green, sustainable, natural wood products has been increasing due to strong consumer choices to follow a product's journey from the forest floor to the final product on the shelf. Since 2011, the National Wildlife Federation and the Alabama TREASURE Forest Association FSC Group Certificate Program has helped build a community of local landowners that pursue innovative and entrepreneurial approaches to forest management and timber marketing. This in turn has provided an income to smaller, local landholders who are actively engaged in sustainable, environmentally friendly, and best social practices, as well as providing an environmentally friendly source of wood products from the southeast.
Who We Are
While our group certificate holder, the Alabama TREASURE Forest Association, is based in Mobile, Alabama, we have members located in Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and Mississippi, and are looking to increase participation in our certificate throughout the southeast. We also work with two other landowner groups based in Alabama, LRLEAN and TUCCA, to provide services to assist landowners in obtaining FSC certification. Please visit our Membership page to find out additional information about joining our group certificate.
What We Offer
We currently produce 100% FSC certified saw logs from a growing base of over 63,000 acres certified in the southeast. Our saw logs are optimal for producing products needed for LEED certification, pulpwood, softwood products, and much more.
