Small landowners are the unsung heroes of the U.S. forest industry. We often think of public forests as the key source of the U.S. wood supply, but in fact, that resource only amounts to about a quarter of the total acreage that is harvested for wood products in the U.S. The rest comprises stock supplied by landowners that have dedicated their acreages to maintaining U.S. forest growth and supply.
The swaths of land that stretch across the southeastern United States are privately held by individual landowners, posing a unique challenge to environmentally-minded companies set on increasing the number of certifed lands. In 2013 Domtar and P&G joined forces, encouraging landowners to certify their lands in order to ensure the health of forests for generations to come.
Ever wonder what a responsibly managed forest looks like? Take a tour of the independently certified forests that supply Domtar's manufacturing base with a source of sustainable wood fiber. These lands in New Hampshire and South Carolina are just two examples of forests we source from to help make the products you rely on every day.
