Are your members' products made from certified wood?

Members who produce and sell Forest Certified Products can be found at Forest Certified Products. CSSB member mills use salvaged logs for manufacturing cedar shakes and shingles. As cedar shake and shingle production uses portions of trees/logs that would otherwise be left lying on the forest floor, it plays an active role in assisting with forest health maintenance.

What is the difference between old growth, second growth, and new growth cedar?

These terms are used in a variety of ways by a number of organizations, many with different mandates. Due to a significant amount of marketplace confusion and lack of factual evidence, the CSSB does not utilize any of these terms.
