The Right Hardwood for Any Application.
Over a decade ago, NWH piloted a program with Asian manufacturers to help cabinet and furniture makers reliably and affordably secure panel products to match our hardwood lumber offerings. We developed a global supply chain and implemented a company managed quality control system so we could provide consistent and dependable products.
Today we are a global supplier of appearance and structural panel products, sourcing from North America, Asia, Russia, Europe and South America. This global supply chain, combined with our advanced distribution network assures timely and reliable delivery.

CARING FOR OUR PLANET
Legal, Sustainable, Abundant Resource
North American Hardwoods are among the most plentiful and well-managed natural resources in the world. Hardwood forests naturally regenerate themselves and do not require planting. The preferred method of harvesting is single-tree selection. This provides a sustainable supply and ensures the overall health of the forest – including water quality, wildlife habitat, and biodiversity. As a result, the volume of hardwoods has more than doubled since 1950.
PEFC Chain-of-Custody Standard
PEFC is the world’s largest forest certification standard promoting sustainable forest management through independent third-party certification. PEFC works throughout the entire forest supply chain to ensure good forest practices and wood sourcing.
NWH PEFC Chain-of-Custody (CoC) certified Alder, PC Maple and PC Birch are sourced from forests certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), the American Tree Farm System (ATFS), the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), and PEFC. Each national forest certification system undergoes rigorous, third party assessment against PEFC’s unique Sustainability Benchmarks to ensure consistency with worldwide standards.
