PEFC Standards in
North America

The three non-profit, independent forest certification programs endorsed by PEFC in North America all meet basic requirements, such as ensuring harvested areas are reforested, laws are obeyed and there is no unauthorized or illegal logging. They also ensure biological diversity is conserved, wildlife habitat is protected, soil and water resources are maintained, timber harvesting is sustainable, and much more.
