Stimson is committed to managing forests in ways that protect and promote biological diversity and conserve fish and wildlife and the natural habitats on which they depend.
Forests are among the most biodiverse and valuable ecosystems. Forest biodiversity can impact everything from the food we eat, the medicines and products we derive from nature, to the quality of the air and water we depend upon. The health and biodiversity of our forests also helps our environment recover from disturbances and adapt to changing conditions.
Critically Imperiled (G1), Imperiled (G2), and Threatened and Endangered Species
We encourage our log suppliers to educate themselves on how to identify threatened and endangered species and important habitat. Your state’s wildlife conservation strategies provide information about efforts to conserve state fish and wildlife and their habitats. In addition, learn about critically imperiled (G1) and imperiled (G2) species and ecological communities in your area.
Invasive Plant and Animal Control
Invasive, exotic plants or animals can thrive and spread aggressively outside their native range. All pose a threat of displacing native species and harming the ecosystem. Be informed about these threats and what you can do to help prevent them.
Special Sites include ecologically or geologically unique or culturally important features. A variety of resources are available to help you locate Special Sites and identify features that would classify an area as a Special Site.
