Apply Common Sense to Forestry

Environmental and social considerations should be an integral component of operating philosophy. 

Responsible forestry is practiced with the following in mind:

  • On a daily basis, a forest plantation captures the CO2 emitted by 15,000 cars.
  • A forest plantation provides jobs for 250 workers, some in traditionally low-income areas.
  • A forest plantation plants on an average more than 3,300,000 trees and growing.
  • Renewable wood products store carbon, permanently removing it from the atmosphere.
