our hardwood forests
Maximize environmental benefits
Our premium hardwood forests will
sustainably capture and store carbon
Grow, Capture & Convert CO2
Trees capture CO2 from the air and covert it into carbon within usable solid wood.
Harvest & Store
Harvested trees — made into hardwood lumber and finished wood products — permanently store the carbon that was captured as the tree grew.
Forests Naturally Regenerate
Our forests naturally regenerate after harvests with no need for any chemicals.
To allow our forests to continue to have a positive impact on CO2 capture, Northern Hardwoods is highly selective at every harvest. Our hardwood forests are never clear cut. Instead, our experienced foresters inspect, choose and harvest only the most ideal trees. Our people and cutting edge equipment work together to allow the forest to naturally replenish and to protect younger, healthy trees so they can continue to grow and store carbon.
1 Selected trees are clearly marked. The harvest is carefully planned to allow younger, healthier trees to keep growing and storing carbon.
2 Our cutting edge equipment and experienced people maximize yield with minimum forest disruption.
3 Premium, one of a kind Hard White Maple trees will continue to flourish and produce exquisite logs like these.
