Responsible Forestry Practices

We at Whole Latte Love take pride in only featuring responsibly forested wood that is crafted and finished to ensure longevity and durability by local artisan woodworkers in the U.S.A. Our wood workers work closely with suppliers to ensure that responsible forestry practices are being followed. They actively combat illegal logging and have policies in place regarding planned felling, minimum tree diameter, and felling rotation to ensure regrowth.
