Plank's Commitment to the Environment
Wide Plank International is committed to being a good steward
of our forest resources. Our woods are never harvested from
endangered species or clear cut forests.
This commitment is manifested in how our woods are acquired.
Materials for Wide Plank International are selectively harvested
from private landowners. For example, a landowner may have
upward of 150 acres that he wishes to selectively harvest.
A properly harvested old growth tree has reached maturity.
If the tree goes beyond maturity, it will begin to die or "rot" on
the stump. At this stage, not only is the tree not usable
for timber, but it is crowding the sunlight and growth for
Therefore, by harvesting timber properly, not only are the
trees used as a valuable resource (at maturity but before
they die on the stump), but this also allows smaller trees
to reach maturity.
