All of Stimson’s forest land has been 3rd party certified under the SFI since 2000. Stimson highly encourages other forest landowners to demonstrate their commitment to responsible forest management by participating in a forest certification. There are several forest certification programs to choose from, but Stimson has found the SFI program to be the most comprehensive and results oriented program, which is why our company decided to become a program participate. The SFI program is primarily focused towards larger industrial landowners, so for the smaller non-industrial forest landowner, certification under the American Tree Farm Program may be more appropriate.
