Abstract or Summary
  • Ecologically sound practices often cost landowners more than less environmentally friendly tactics. However, some consumers are willing to pay more for the assurance of production practices they value. Third-party certification is a way to acknowledge sustainable production practices beyond what is required by law. The market for such products is often new and relatively small, but one company is betting that in the future, certification will be essential to market access. A certified timber company and sawmill in Northwest Montana is using log-buying policies to incentivize certified sustainable forestry practices on private lands. Stewardship is rewarded, and both landowners and the mill benefit by being better prepared in evolving markets.
