FORESTRY IS OUR FOUNDATION.
We follow the highest standards in the forests we manage.
The forests owned and managed by North on Sixty have achieved Forest Stewardship Council® certification (FSC® C018800) through the Eastern Ontario Model Forest’s Forest Certification Program. The FSC® is an international, membership-based, non-profit organization that supports environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests.
We salvage wood from sources that minimize environmental impact. We've used wood from barns, farmhouses, warehouses, factories, plane hangars, bridges, and the list goes on. All of our recycled and water-recovered woods have been sourced within 300 kilometres of our shop, as have 90% of our woods from managed forests.
We offer a full range of forest management services to others.
Forest management is inherently a long-term investment—as good investments so often are.
The reality is that much of Southern Ontario's best trees have been taken—what remains is largely the more undesirable species (Poplar, Balsam Fir, and to a lesser degree Spruce). They quite literally prevent sunlight from reaching the understory where many of the more desirable species experience stunted growth. Cutting out the less desirable trees through a technique called release-thinning accelerates what would otherwise be a natural process.
We are advocates for responsible forestry and advise widely on the subject across Ontario, offering a full range of services including Managed Forest Tax Incentive Plans.
We take great care of the land on which we work and live.
In the original construction of our site, we positioned the buildings in a way that allowed us to keep all of the land's healthy, mature trees.
To heat our buildings we use an outdoor wood boiler to heat a mix of food-grade glycol and water, which then gets pumped through more than two kilometers of plastic tubing. The wood comes from managed forests, shop cutoffs, and our sawmill’s slabwood.
We keep to an absolute minimum the packaging coming into our shop, and source-separate and reuse cardboard for the packaging going out. And, with the exception of the inevitable cutoffs from cabinet production, our entire operation typically produces just one bag of garbage per week.
