"Sustainable forestry means managing our forests to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs by practicing a land stewardship ethic which integrates the growing, nurturing, and harvesting of trees for useful products with the conservation of soil, air and water quality, and wildlife and fish habitat."

At LHH, Logging is about more than producing logs for the mills. LHH has a long-standing tradition of responsible forest management and encourage landowners, loggers, foresters and others to promote and support sustainable, environmentally sound forestry practices. Protection of water quality, prompt reforestation after harvest, promoting wildlife conservation, and continuously improving our practices and forest management activities to ensure long-term forest productivity and usage. Forests are home to a tremendous variety of wildlife, producers of clean drinking water, and places for recreation. Each state has unique, but somewhat similar rules regulating forest management activities such as reforestation, erosion control, water quality and wildlife protection. At a minimum, LHH is committed to meet these rules. However, LHH recognizes that these rules identify the minimum acceptable standards. As such, we often exceed the minimums in order to remove these renewable resources from the forest while still protecting the other forest resources such as water quality and wildlife. The practice of sustainable forestry requires all parties involved in the production of wood products from forest land to work together. This allows us to better address environmental as well as forest productivity issues to ensure sound management practices. Landowners are encouraged to utilize the services of qualified resource professionals and qualified logging professionals. Timber harvesters need to be fully knowledgeable of the local regulations affecting timber harvesting. LHH is an active member of TUCARE, California Logging Association & the Farm Bureau. These groups are independent organizations comprised of conservation, forest products and academic groups dedicated to promoting sustainable forest management. It is our collective responsibility to ensure that the utilization of forest products today does not jeopardize the usage of the same resources by future generations.
