NCASI support for research requirements in forest certification programs

Participants in forest certification programs are asked to support research that advances sustainable forest management and apply relevant scientific information in their forest management activities. NCASI’s forestry research program addresses topics identified in the major forest certification programs used in North America such as forest health and productivity, forest chemical use, water quality and effectiveness of best management practices, conservation of wildlife and biological diversity, ecological implications of bioenergy feedstock removals, climate change, and forest operations efficiencies and economics.

NCASI prepares detailed documentation every year about how NCASI forestry program tasks are addressing core certification program requirements. The information for the current NCASI fiscal year (April 1, 2015 through March 31, 2016) is available for use by Member Companies at http://www.ncasi.org/Programs/Forestry/Resources/Support-Forest-Cert/Index.aspx. NCASI member companies also may request a letter confirming their support for research requirements identified in forest certification programs.
