Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), the organization that certifies forests covering more than a quarter billion acres/100 million hectares stretching from Canada's boreal forest to the U.S. South, has announced its new Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) 2015-2019 Standards and Rules.
The new standards incorporate the latest scientific information, input gathered from 12 public workshops held across the United States and Canada, and comments solicited from approximately 10,000 stakeholders.
I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
