Forest Stewardship Council® Certification

In January 2013 Mark Seed Forest & Land Management (MSFLM) were certified by the ‘Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) Licence Code (FSC-C114375)’. This service involves the payment of a group membership fee and yearly subscription, in addition to ongoing management costs.

The FSC logo is a sign of well managed woodlands, and can be carried on all timber products from certified woodlands.  An increasing number of industries such as DIY stores, furniture manufacturers etc. are demanding FSC timber products. However, very few firms offer this service. As a result, timber from FSC certified woodlands are realising much greater market prices.

Certification is possible through the MSFLM Group Scheme, whereby MSFLM will ensure that woodlands are being managed to these FSC Principles and assessed against UKWAS and the Soil Association Woodmark Group (Multiple Site) Certification Standard.

“Forest management operations shall encourage the efficient use of the forest’s multiple products and services to ensure economic viability and a wide range of environmental and social benefits.”
