Responsible Practices in Forest Management

Posted on Posted in About Hardwood Floors

Since 1945, Harman Hardwood Flooring has been committed to providing customers with the finest quality of hardwood flooring products and services available anywhere in the country. Not only is Harman Hardwood Flooring dedicated to their customers, they’re also dedicated to the protection of our environment.

Harman believes that protecting the environment is just as important as providing their customers with the same level of excellence they’ve come to expect for over 65 years. Harman knows that hardwood flooring is the most abundantly renewable flooring material available. That’s why Harman only selects their wood from suppliers who stand by their commitment to responsible forest management.

Sustainable forest management makes it possible to harvest wood without any serious impact on the environment because trees are a renewable resource that can be replaced time and time again. What many people may not realize is that the majority of American forest land is privately owned by families and other private groups who follow best practices to ensure superior forest health. To ensure the continued health and growth of forests, these professional foresters practice the complex science of Silviculture, the art and science of controlling the establishment of growth, composition, and quality of forests to meet diverse needs and values.

Today there is twice as much new wood growth as there is removal through harvesting, under the collective stewardship of approximately 11 million private forest owners. This may sound technical, but it’s actually quite simple. Harman Hardwood Flooring does everything it can to keep our customers and our environment happy.

Here are some additional eco-friendly facts to consider.

  • Hardwood floors use less water and energy to produce than other flooring options.
  • At the end of its service life, hardwood flooring can be burned as fuel or recycled.
  • While it takes most hardwood trees 40-60 years to mature, the inventory planted today won’t be needed for 100+ years.
  • Hardwood floors last hundreds of years, so they won’t need to be replaced as much as other flooring options.
