As members of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative of Pennsylvania we have adopted their definition of sustainable forestry. This definition is based largely on one developed by the Bruntland Commission on Sustainable Development which was adopted by the International Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992.

"Sustainable forestry means managing our forests to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs by practicing a land stewardship ethic which integrates the reforestation, managing, growing, nurturing, and harvesting of trees for useful products with the conservation of soil, air, and water quality, wildlife and fish habitat, and aesthetics."

The SFI recognizes five broad elements of sustainable forestry:

  • Meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to use the forest for products as well as for ecological and other uses.
  • Promote both environmentally and economically responsible practices members' and all other forestlands.
  • Improve long-term forest health and productivity by protecting forests against wildfire pests and disease.
  • Manage forests of biological, geological, or historical significance to protect their special qualities.
  • Continuosly improve forest management and regularly track progress toward achieving the goal of sustainable forestry.

We look for opportunities to work with landowners in our local area to do timber harvesting as part of a forest management plan that promotes sustainable forestry. 
We encourage landowners to actively manage their wood lots so that they and their children & grandchildren will be able to continue to enjoy the benefits of their wood lot for many years.  If you own at least 5 wooded acres and would like to learn more about this process, please contact us.
