Home Depot on Lumber Certification
Home Depot on
My compliments to you for an excellent publication. I just received my first issue and am glad I subscribed.
I’m not sure how you interpreted my comments from the Sustainable Forest Products Conference, but The Home Depot is not for, but against, a simple stamp or seal. We fully support the SCS Forest Conservation Index approach. What I was trying to communicate is that the certification process for wood should be thought of like a lumber grade stamp, except that instead of current grading systems that signify traditional product efficacy or quality, certified wood is in fact “graded” for ecological quality.
