Over the past decades, deforestation (total logging of trees), the destruction of tropical forests and other stem and unsustainable management (management so as not to reduce the forest wealth) the majority of forests in the world, are factors leading to need for global forest certification organizations of good management, promoting the idea of implementing the principles of sustainable management of forests.
The two most basic are the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council, www.fsc.org) and the PEFC (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, www.pefc.org). At the same time, individual countries or groups of countries at the regional level, not just follow the instructions of the above organizations, but on additional, have signed international conventions that oblige them to maintain biodiversity, or prohibiting the trafficking of endangered species of flora and fauna, etc.
The felling of forests today is wasteful. The regulations are very strict and the penalties for those who are illegally felling or trade unlawful timber is large. Wooden products nowadays come from legally-certified wood harvested from sustainable forests. This means that the wood comes from forests where trees are planted again with the same or more times more frequently than cut.
So now, in dozens of countries there are millions of acres of forests that certified in accordance with the standards of PEFC or F.S.C. and producing millions of cubic certified timber traded in the global market. According to 2005, worldwide by acres of forest certified exceed 1.570.000.000.
In conclusion we can say that using wood products, helping the development of forests and does not contribute to their destruction.
