Green Diamond Resource Company is a fifth-generation, family-owned forest products company. We own and manage forests in California and Washington and produce redwood and Douglas-fir lumber in California. We manage our lands in an environmentally responsible manner, as sustainable and productive working forests. A few important facts:
- We operate under the toughest forest practice regulations
found anywhere – regulations developed to protect water
quality, soils, fish, wildlife species, sensitive plants
and archeological sites.
- In California, Green Diamond Resource Company lands have achieved Forest Management certification under the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards
- Our Washington timberlands are independently certified to be in compliance with the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Standard.
- We harvest less than 2% of our lands annually; all harvested areas are quickly replanted with native species to start the forest cycle anew.
- These vibrant, working forests improve water quality, provide habitat for many fish and wildlife species and store carbon – carbon that continues to be stored in the quality wood products these forests produce.
- In 1992, we were the first company to receive approval for a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) for the Northern Spotted Owl. In 2007, we obtained approval for an HCP that protects seven aquatic species on our lands in California. A Multi-species Habitat Conservation Plan that protects 51 fish and wildlife species on our Washington lands was approved in 2000.
- Ethical conduct is expected of everyone who serves Green Diamond - our Board, officers, managers, employees, and contractors. It is a tradition that has endured for more than a century and one that will drive our success for future generations. We take pride in our "In the Clear/Out of the Bight" Code of Conduct.
