FSC-Certified Wood > Green Products, Green Building Materials

By: Green Depot  09-12-2011

FSC lumber is sourced from forests that are certified as responsibly managed by the Forest Stewardship Council, the world's leading 3rd-party certifier. Certification criteria include:

  • Adoption of methods that preserve biodiversity
  • Reduction of environmental impacts
  • Rights of indigenous communities and forestry workers
  • Maintenance of a long-term forest management plan
  • Compliance with laws and international treaties

Green Depot can provide Chain of Custody (CoC) documentation for your project, guaranteeing tracking all along the supply chain: from forest to mill to processor, distributor, or treater; and finally, to delivery at a Green Depot warehouse or your jobsite.

  • Responsibly harvested wood (FSC)
  • Certifications

    Comes in most standard grades of dimensional and engineered lumber, including North American kiln-dried softwoods such as pine, spruce and Douglas fir; hardwoods such as maple, birch, and cherry; and some exotics. Many standard grades are stocked in Green Depot warehouses and can be easily transferred from one location to another, or delivered to your jobsite, in 2-5 days. For special orders, lead times may vary from 1 - 5 weeks, depending on species, quantity ordered, treatment required (exterior or flame), and other factors.

Always follow with a clean water rinse and allow the floor to thoroughly dry before allowing traffic. Its static load limit is 150 pounds per square inch, double that of many vinyl composition tiles. Remove loose soil and grit by sweeping, dust mopping or, preferably, vacuuming the floor.
