The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) Program is a fully-independent forest certification program. The work of the SFI Program starts with a standard but the SFI Program is much more – it is a community that stands for the future of forests. At the heart of the SFI community are SFI Implementation Committees (SICs). There are 34 SICs across the United States and Canada, with close to 1,000 volunteers. Our active presence on the ground is resulting in significant contributions to individual communities through activities such as training loggers and other resource professionals and sponsoring outreach to landowners on responsible forest management.
The Pennsylvania SFI Implementation Committee was established in 1995 and extends the SFI Program's reach by working to foster an appreciation of conservation and forest management throughout Pennsylvania.
