International Veneer Shipment Limitations
We support the protection of endangered trees and respect sustainable harvesting of all forest land.
The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) works with more than 180 countries to protect rare species of trees from illegal harvesting. Each country has a government agency that helps enforce the rules and guidelines set forth by CITES. In the US, that agency is the Fish and Wildlife portion of the Department of the Interior. This department works inconjunction with CITES to regulate the import and export of endangered species in and out of the USA.
In observance of the laws set forth by our government, our website has special coding that will halt the checkout process if a restricted species is being shipped out of the US.
To comply with regulations, we will not ship the following veneers out of the USA.
