FSC® Certified Ipe - Where Caring for the Rainforest Meets the World's Best Decking

fsc-ipe-interest

Ipe is rightfully one of the most popular decking choices for those seeking a long-lasting wood deck.  The wood is very stable, very durable, and finishes a beautiful dark brown color.  It has been used in countless private projects and is the wood of choice in large municipal projects including boardwalks.

As part of the class of tropical hardwoods, however, it cannot be used in any LEED project unless it is certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council.  FSC certified Ipe is rare and demand always seems to exceed supply.

All of our Ipe is legally harvested and subject to the internationally-recognized environmental stewardship of IBAMA, the Brazilian forestry certification program.  However, FSC is known to be the crème de la crème of certifications, and we are proud to be able to offer this gold-standard credential. FSC plays an important role in demonstrating the importance of finding economic value in maintaining  the Amazon as rainforest, rather than clearing it to make way for short-term cattle grazing or soybean monoculture.

We welcome inquiries from distributors and dealers interested in FSC Certified Ipe.
