FSC US creates a defined set of criteria to help forest managers identify areas of concern/interest within the Central Appalachian CBA. That information is then communicated by certificate holders to suppliers, along with the recommended BMPs for harvest, and contact information of ENGOs that may be interested in protection actions such as easements.
Participate in the discussion forum to share ideas and provide feedback about practical actions that companies can take to promote positive impacts on forest management, and reduce the risk of procuring wood from forests where important ecological values are threatened.
The forum is organized by each Regional Meeting with each Specified Risk Topic listed under each meeting:
Asheville (Appalachian Region)
Atlanta (Southeast/Mississippi Alluvial Valley Regions)
Portland (Pacific Coast/Rocky Mountain Regions)
