Forest Certification: Forest Certification is a voluntary third-party process to verify and recognize sustainably managed forests as measured by ecological, economic, and social benchmarks. Fiber from certified forestland can move through production streams, thus enabling the end product to receive a certified logo informing customers that the product came from a certified, well-managed forest and was manufactured responsibly. Chain-of-Custody (CoC) Certification is a process that tracks materials from the forest to the consumer, verifying that the product was grown, harvested and manufactured consistent with the principles of Forest Certification. Hedstrom Lumber Company #SCS-COC-003302 / FSC-C099963 produces products certified by the independent Forest Stewardship Council™ .
