The Build Local Alliance Good Wood Statement

Whether you are a forester, consumer, or somewhere in between, we believe it is important to consider what Good Wood means to you. We believe that the decision of what is “responsibly grown” wood is best made by the informed individual and respectfully explored through constructive discussion.

The values outlined below are considerations we believe are critically important when considering what Good Wood means to you and your community.
