Re: “Sustainable Forestry Initiative Losing Support

Loggers across the United States continue to be puzzled by the use of their sector of the industry in editorials such as this when the author should be referring to the forest products manufacturing (mills) sector of the country. The vast majority of logging operations in the United States are small, family-owned businesses that have skilled, trained professionals that are out there practicing sustainable harvesting practices. Logger training and education is a component of the SFI program, and something that is almost seen as an oversight in the FSC program.

We will, like Jason, be glad when the focus of all certification programs becomes an on the ground measure of sustainable forestry practices, and not a political tool to sway public opinion and forest management policies.
