In the lesson, we learned about two of the major forest certification systems in the United States: the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). But what are the differences between these two systems? For this reflection, we’d like you to read this report from Dovetail Partners that provides a discussion of the SFI and FSC standards.
Based on the Dovetail report and one other source (cite both title and url link) that you find online, does one of these certification systems seem superior to the other? If yes – why? If no – why? We anticipate around 200 words.
In the lesson we had a video from Collum’s Lumber Products, LLC in which they gave a tour of their sawmill. For your reflection, we’d like you to explain to us what you believe are 3 take-home points from the video. These might be things that you learned or things that surprised you. From reading your 3 points, someone who has never seen the video should have a decent understanding of the milling process.
We expect around 200 words. Please number your important points 1, 2, and 3.
