Forest Certification in Sustainable Development: Healing the Landscape

From recycled products to organic food, the movement to be environmentally friendly is now expanding into the forestry field. Recognizing this impact, Home Depot has committed to giving preference to selling certified wood, proven to come from forests that meet certain biological and social sustainablility standards. Retailers and vendors can offer certified wood through the international Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and FSC accredited organizations like SmartWood, recently featured in People magazine.
