Rediscovered Wood and Underwater Salvage
The Rediscovered Wood service was developed in 2007 to provide forestry and wood products organizations with a certification system for the recovery of wood from sources that were not acknowledged by other reputable forestry certification standards. These sources include secondary manufacturing facilities (waste materials), urban and suburban areas, orchards and landfills. A separate standard was also developed to accommodate underwater salvage operations, which are considered to have a more environmentally sensitive recovery process.
After recent review of current services and demand for certification, the Rainforest Alliance has decided to discontinue the Rediscovered Wood certification service. Certificate Holders that currently hold an active Rediscovered Wood certification may continue their certification until the end of their five-year certification agreement.
Rainforest Alliance is no longer accepting new applicants to this certification service.
A list of active Rainforest Alliance Rediscovered Wood clients is maintained for public review.
