Certified Forest Management

IFM has experience with third-party certified forest management. Some of the more popular third-party certification systems are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), and American Tree Farm System (ATFS). All of these standards set standards for responsible forest management. By adopting these standards in conjunction with your management you pledge to hold your timberlands to the highest standards of forest management. Furthermore, forest products delivered to the marketplace from your certified woodlands carry the increasingly recognized symbol of responsible stewardship bringing prestige and increased value to you as a landowner. Certification is for those clients that wish to have their woodlands recognized by a third-party certifier that there management meets their standards.
