Using environmentally conscious methods, Greenleaf foresters remove only the trees that need to be harvested tokeep the forest healthy. Many of these are small-diameter trees,
which then become poles and are made into these products to enhance your home
or property .

The Greenleaf Guarantee
All of Greenleaf's products are made from wood harvested using sustainable methods. Greenleaf's forests are left standing, enhanced, ecologically intact, and healthy.
From “Options wide open for small-diameter wood” paper by
Sheryl Herres on April 6th, 2004, Len Lankford, CEO and president of
Greenleaf Forestry and Wood Products in Westcliffe, Colo., says communities
come first. He said he believes forests must be kept intact and productive even
after logging. He calls it “landscape logging,” and says the loggers would
incorporate nursery operations.
“Imagine custom loggers that are landscape forestry teams,” Lankford said.
“Imagine a wood factory that can use anything profitably – slash,
small-diameter, defective wood in mixed-diameter woods. Imagine a true
community forest. This is what the forest landowner and the public want.”
