Setting the Standard
Sustainable Forest Management Certification
Teal-Jones forestry operations voluntarily meet Canada’s leading national standard for sustainable forest management. The Canadian Standards Association Sustainable Forest Management Z809 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 has been met.
Harvesting operations include a Tree Farm License on Southern Vancouver Island and Timber and Forest Licenses in the Fraser Valley and Canyon area. All forestry operations are certified to the CSA Z809-16 Sustainable Forest Management Standard.
Teal-Jones’ Sustainable Forest Management Plan outlines commitments to meeting ecological, social, cultural and economic criteria and indicators. The Sustainable Forest Management Plan is maintained through active public involvement by a range of local people. As part of the certification requirements, Teal-Jones regularly undergoes independent, third-party audits to ensure compliance with the standard.
Sustainable Forest Management Plan
The objective of The Teal-Jones Group Sustainable Forest Management Plan is to provide clear direction for transferring higher level sustainable forest management commitments to “on the ground commitments”.
