These workshops for forestry professionals and interests are brought to you in part by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI®). The SFI Program is administered by the Wisconsin SFI Implementation Committee (SIC).  It is funded voluntarily by participating paper, lumber and forestry companies and works collaboratively with timber producers and transporters, educational institutions, public and private forest interests, and forestry-related associations to support the SFI Principles. In brief, the SFI program is based on the belief that responsible environmental behavior and sound business decisions can coexist to the benefit of communities, landowners, manufacturers, shareholders, customers and the environment – today and for future generations.  For more information visit
