It’s simple, local is as close to home as you can get.


With Commonwealth Quality forest products you gain the peace of mind that your purchase is going towards supporting local small businesses in Massachusetts who care about our forests. We feel strongly that wood products should tell the story of their journey from the forest to customer.


That’s why we certify:
Commonwealth Quality wood is grown, processed, and finished in Massachusetts.


To produce products that meet Commonwealth Quality specifications requires an attention to detail and a vision towards investing in our local communities for the future. Meeting this challenge participating businesses maintain a Chain-of Custody that ensures:

CQP forest products are 100% grown on a Massachusetts forest land.
Primary forest/wood product manufacturers use a minimum of 75% Massachusetts-sourced wood products for CQP processing purposes, and the processing facility must be located in Massachusetts.
Secondary wood product manufacturers use a minimum of 75% Massachusetts-sourced wood products for CQP processing purposes, and the processing facility must be located in Massachusetts.
