The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) has been working to make a positive difference in Michigan's vast forests since 1995. The SFI program in Michigan works to support responsible forest practices, wood procurement and harvesting throughout Michigan.

Collectively, SFI Inc. and SFI Program Participants:

  • Train thousands of loggers and foresters
  • Provide forestry information and support to family forest owners
  • Apply SFI principles on more than five million of acres of SFI Program Participant lands in Michigan
  • Use responsible wood procurement practices that
    conform to the SFI standard
  • Provide assurance to customers and consumers that
    the forest and paper products they purchase, are from
    sustainably managed forests.
Logger + Trainee Database

The SFI training program was developed to satisfy the wood-procurement and harvesting requirements of the many SFI-certified wood purchasing companies in Michigan. SFE training consists of core and continuing education (CE) training. This database can be checked by foresters who work for SFI-certified companies.

Facts About Forestry
How much wood does it take to build a house?

Obviously, the answer depends on the house. However, a 2,000 square foot house will use about 13,000 board feet of framing lumber and about 6200 square feet of sheathing (usually oriented strand board - OSB).
