There are general misconceptions that our consumption of timber in the US is depleting the worlds forest. When in fact, most of the deforestation and use of the tropical forest is due to local natives clearing the natural landscape to make room for farming and pastures as well as construction timber for urban sprawl and fuel.
A balance needs to be achieved to conserve our precious forest through education and adding economical value on a global level. In doing so, we actively support organizations such as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Tropical Forest Foundation (TFF) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
We at Crown Veneer Corp. have a clear understanding of the importance in conserving our natural resources for future generations. In efforts to conserve our natural forest it is our policy to avoid the purchasing or trading of illegally harvested wood; wood h arvested in violation of any civil rights; wood harvested where high conservation values are threatened by poor management activities; wood harvested in forest being converted to plantations or non-forest use and wood from forest that have been genetically modified.
Certified by SCS to the FSC standards, we have adopted procedures for the sourcing and trading of loath FSC Pure and FSC Controlled wood products.
