Woodlands Department

Underlying everything HHP does is a commitment to responsible forestry and best management practices in its woodlots as well as in its manufacturing. Our business is dependent on a sustainable supply of wood and it is imperative that our forests remain healthy and productive. Eighty percent of the wood HHP uses is purchased as stumpage directly from landowners and harvested under the oversight of HHP’s state-licensed foresters.

HHP also has its own fully mechanized logging crew. This state-of-the-art system enables us to log year round with less impact on the surrounding forest. This is because, rather than clear cutting, we are able to selectively thin a stand, then utilize the branches cut from the selected trees as a trail bed, thereby limiting the impact the machinery has on the forest floor.
