Overview

The Teal-Jones Group is committed to sustainable management of the resources under their stewardship in a scientifically credible and environmentally, economically and socially responsible manner.

Teal-Jones forestry operations voluntarily meet Canada’s leading national standard for sustainable forest management; the Canadian Standards Association Sustainable Forest Management Z809 Standard. This standard provides for independent third-party verification that forestry organizations conduct forest planning and practices sustainably, assuring that the high threshold set by the standards have been met.

Teal-Jones’ wood products are certified under the Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) Chain of Custody System, providing assurance that international sustainability benchmarks are met through rigorous third-party assessment. PEFC sustainability benchmarks have been developed based on internationally-recognized, ongoing and long term, intergovernmental processes and guidelines for the promotion of sustainable forest management to ensure compliance with globally agreed requirements.
