Cudahy Lumber is an FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) Certified Company, (FSC® C013641) offering a range of sustainable wood and lumber products. Sustainable wood comes from sustainably managed forests. These are a renewable resource and are managed to prevent damage to eco-systems, watersheds, and other forest values.

What is FSC® and How Does It Ensure Sustainability?

The FSC® is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established in 1993 as a response to global deforestation. The Forest Stewardship Council® has changed the dialogue about and the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. FSC® sets forth principles, criteria, and standards that span economic, social, and environmental concerns. The FSC® standards represent the world’s strongest system for guiding forest management toward sustainable outcomes.

FSC®’s chain of custody system (CoC) tracks FSC® certified material through the production process – from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of processing, transformation, manufacturing and distribution. The CoC is kept “intact” when all material suppliers of wood products are FSC® certified suppliers.

FSC® Certified Products are any wood products that are sold with an FSC® claim by a FSC® organization that has been assessed by an FSC® accredited certification body for conformity with FSC® Chain of Custody (CoC) requirements. FSC® materials include:


  • Solid wood lumber or dimension stock or wood components, e.g., cleats and blocks
  • Wood veneers and Gator-Ply backer material
  • Composite board, e.g., flakeboard or Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF)
  • Tack boards
  • Drawer components, and wrapped base components and crown rails
