84 Lumber gains FSC certification for 26 yards

Pro dealer 84 Lumber has received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification for 26 of its lumberyards, the company announced.

The locations are: Bridgeville, Mars, Grove City, Clarion and Eighty Four, Pa.; Moundsville, W.Va.; North Eaton (Columbia Station), Painesville, Macedonia and Massillon, Ohio; Rochester, Middletown, Ithaca, Elma, Watertown and Riverhead, N.Y.; Wyoming (Grand Rapids), Mich.; Karns (Knoxville), Tenn.; Mount Airy, Md.; Ft. Myers, Fla.; Gurnee, Ill.; Las Vegas; Henderson, Colo.; Chandler, Ariz.; and Beaumont and Hesperia, Calif.

The chain of custody designation enables these stores to sell FSC-certified lumber and building materials, which can earn points in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) projects, NAHB's Model Green Home Building Guidelines, and other green certification programs. 

"FSC-certified products are a value-added service for our increasingly environmentally conscience customers,” said Kathleen Mannas, green products manager at 84 Lumber. "The FSC supports healthy forests and communities, and 84 Lumber is a strong proponent of this initiative.”
