Like Timber Block, Nordic Engineered Wood prides itself on being green. While it has always been responsible for reforestation and the stewardship of over 2 million acres of vital forestland, Nordic nonetheless underwent ISO 14001 Certification in 2000 and, to stay at the forefront of environmentally responsible forestry practices, became certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) in 2009.
Nordic’s proprietary ENVIRO-LAM™ process is the direct result of the commitment to the best and highest utilization of wood fiber.

ENVIRO-LAM is featured in Nordic Lam beams, headers, columns, tall wall studs, and the latest innovation, the NI-90x I-joist Series.
