Wisconsin Master Logger Environmental Results Charter Charter participant since 04/16/2012

The Wisconsin Master Logger program represents loggers from across Wisconsin that are committed to going beyond compliance in harvesting practices. These dedicated professionals demonstrate their commitment to sustainable forestry by practicing environmentally sound approaches. They ensure that timber is harvested with high sustainability standards to guarantee Wisconsin’s working forests continue to regenerate for this and future generations.

About the charter
