Green building is growing ever more popular all over the world. The gold standard in green building is LEED. One way to earn LEED points is by using FSC certified material. FSC stands for the Forest Stewardship Council®. FSC certification ensures that lumber is grown, harvested, and milled, in a responsible manner, from the forest to the end user. FSC certified lumber can be a little hard to find, but Bayou City Lumber keeps FSC certified material in stock. All of our sales associates are very knowledgeable about FSC certified lumber and the LEED system.
