Best Management Practices (BMP's)

The use of water quality BMP’s is a vital component in insuring that soil and water quality is not compromised as a result of forest management activities. All Stimson logging contracts and log purchase agreements require that BMP’s be followed. Further, it is Stimson’s policy to not knowingly purchase log from harvest operations where BMP’s are not being adhered to. The below listed links will direct you to detailed information on BMP’s:


Stimson routinely monitors BMP implementation of our wood suppliers through the use of our verifiable monitoring system. Stimson also evaluates BMP compliance across our fiber sourcing area by reviewing agency FPA and BMP compliance reports. Information on Stimson’s monitoring system and links to past FPA/BMP compliance reports can be found below:
