Licenses and Certifications
ACH and FSC
Acadian Cypress and Hardwoods. is a certified member of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Because of organizations like FSC and companies like Acadian Cypress and Hardwoods, we continue to increased the amount of forestation in the United States, 82% more since the fifties.
Being certified by FSC requires frequent inspections to continually prove good stewardship. This is how Acadian Cypress and Hardwoods. is working to increase the amount of forests in the United States, reduce imports, decrease water pollution, and help the wildlife that dwells in those forests.
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is a non-profit organization devoted to encouraging the responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC sets high standards that ensure forestry is practiced in an environmentally responsible, socially beneficial, and economically viable way.
Landowners and companies that sell timber or forest products seek certification as a way to verify to consumers that they have practiced forestry consistent with FSC standards. Independent, certification organizations are accredited by FSC to carry out assessments of forest management to determine if standards have been met. These certifiers also verify that companies claiming to sell FSC certified products have tracked their supply back to FSC certified sources. This chain of custody certification assures that consumers can trust the FSC label.
Trusted environmental organizations including Greenpeace, National Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, and World Wildlife Fund all support and encourage FSC certification. Consumers wishing to support healthy forests and communities should look and ask for the FSC label when purchasing wood or paper products.
