Healing Harvest Forest Foundation
The Healing Harvest Forest Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that exists to “Address human needs for forest products while creating a nurturing co-existence between the forest and the human community”. They do this by providing practitioner support, educational services to the general public, developing sustainable cultural traditions, and exploring methods and techniques that relate to low impact harvesting of forest products. James River Horse Logging is a supporter of this effort and partners with them in reaching their goals. Check out the HHFF web site for information on low-impact harvesting, sustainable forestry and more on this cutting edge organization.
Draftwood Community Green Certified Forest Products may the best choice to make a positive impact on the environment. Draftwood standards exceed every other standard in the industry, including FSC and SFI. Our products are guaranteed to have been harvested under a Restorative Management Plan, Draftwood Principles and Criteria and Guidelines. Extraction is accomplished through the use of modern low-impact animal power in every instance possible - providing you a uniquely sourced product.
Given the proper lead time we can fill your order for a wide variety of products. This includes logs, lumber, framing, exterior decking, beams, and much more. You can rest assured that any product purchased through us comes from the most innovative and stringent Green Certification standards in the business.
Draftwood Green Certified Forest Products have been used in L.E.E.D building projects and can provide extra points through that system for innovative certification methods and locally sourced materials. Use Draftwood Green Certified Forest Products in your next building project.
Our Practitioners use ground-breaking and innovative inventory management for our wood products. Inventory is stored 'on the stump', thereby decreasing storage inputs and allowing your lumber to be as fresh as possible. This method allows the material to actually grow in value while being stored, as opposed to any other method where storage is a cost.
We have millions of board feet awaiting your orders for right-on-time delivery through adequate lead time and planning. You are also invited to come see your material being harvested at any time. Ask about our Consumer Supported Forestry Program. We can harvest and process material from your own property for your own building project. It doesn't get any more locally sourced than that.
