Tree Farm System has granted certification to O'Neill
Pine Company's timber management practices.
A nationwide community of 66,000 non-industrial private
forest landowners, the American Tree Farm System is the
oldest certifier of sustainable forests in the United
States. Its members are joined in their commitment to
excellence in forest stewardship. The Tree Farm System
is a program of the American
Forest Foundation, a non-profit organization that
develops, funds, and administers programs which encourage
the long-term stewardship of our natural resources.
It is not financially feasible for O'Neill Pine Company
to be certified under the Sustainable
Forestry Initiative (SFI). Because O'Neill Pine
Company is American Tree Farm certified, SFI allows mills to
count O'Neill Pine Company wood as certified fiber.
This helps the SFI chain of custody mills to maintain their
own SFI claims.
