Corporate Statement on Forestry Stewardship
Potlatch Corporation is a leader in forestry stewardship and sustainability, as evidenced by our commitment to obtain third party auditing and certification of our practices under the strict standards of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and Forest Stewardship Council. That means we manage our timber resources mindful of the long-term impacts on the forest and on the communities nearby. Sustainable practices are central to our business model. Practices that protect air, soil, water and wildlife help ensure that we can keep harvesting trees well into the future.
Our business philosophy is grounded in sustainably managing the resources we own. We believe forestry stewardship is not only the right thing to do, but is also crucial to secure the future of our industry and our leadership position within it.
Forestry stewardship at Potlatch is implemented by a professional team of foresters, scientists, and operators responsible for sustainable activities on the land we own. We partner with government agencies, universities and non-profit groups to study and protect a variety of wildlife and plant species that inhabit our forests.
