Sustainable Forestry Initiative

In 2012, King Forest Industries received its SFI fiber sourcing certification. We developed and maintained a program that worked well for everyone. We learned a lot in those years. We shared our knowledge with our suppliers, the landowners and the community about sustainable forestry and the importance of community involvement in protecting the long-term health of New Hampshire forest.

As of October 18, 2020, King Forest has chosen not to renew our SFI certification. Our program will remain the same. We feel that our program works, and our beliefs have not changed. Why fix what isn't broken.

2020 has been a rough year for everyone. Most small businesses have had to make cuts to save money to remain open and running. SFI certification is one of those cuts we have chosen to make.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
