    Nwh Pallet Team

    We asked our customers what we could do to improve our performance. After listening to their responses, we developed our “pallet team,” a combination of sales and customer service. We focus on value by providing our customers with current market information and full-time sales and customer service.

    Transportation

    A sale may start with the order, but it’s not complete until you receive your load, in your yard, on time. That’s the mission of our in-house pallet transportation specialist, who works every day to make sure you receive products when you want them and in the most efficient manner. Three of our alder facilities are located on the Union Pacific and/or Burlington Northern rail lines and have truck-loading capabilities as well, which means we have transportation options available to suit every need.

    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.

    FSC Chain-of-Custody Standard

    NWH is certified to the Forest Stewardship Council® Chain of Custody and Controlled Wood Standards. We can offer a variety of products and species with FSC® claims. Ask us today about availability and refer to the www.fsc.org for more details

    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.
