Forest Management Group Certification

To ease barriers to forest certification, FSC created a system of group certification. Group certification involves sharing costs of certification among members of the group. While group certification is typically pursued by small family forest landowners, forests of any size can seek certification as part of a group.

Group managers oversee Forest Management groups and interested landowners should contact these individuals to determine if they are eligible.
