We Understand The Importance Of Being Environmentally Friendly.

 

In Fact, If It Weren’t For All The Precious Resources Provided By Mother Nature, We Wouldn’t Be Able To Provide You With Our Incredible Log Cabin Kits.

With that in mind, our process has not only implemented state-of-the-art manufacturing automation that virtually eliminates waste, we are also highly invested in sustainable forestry techniques. Conestoga Log Cabins & Homes understands precisely how to limit soil erosion and compaction when harvesting our lumber. This eco-friendly approach ensures we are doing our part to sustain and nurture the trees that provide our materials.

Conestoga Cabins are Sustainable

The best part about Conestoga cabins is that they are sustainable and environmentally friendly because they are primarily made from a renewable resource…trees.

Conestoga is committed to environmental wellness and we demonstrate this commitment in our manufacturing methods.

It begins with Conestoga’s Everlast™ Log which is produced in accordance with ISO-14001 Environmental Management System standards.  This assures minimal environmental impact in timber harvesting.  Our milling operations utilize cutting-edge fiber optimization software which nearly eliminates any material waste.

Because We Care

As a conscientious manufacturer who cares about the planet and its precious resources, Conestoga is continually reviewing its manufacturing to ensure the lowest carbon footprint in the log home industry.

Technology improves efficiency…

Our machines are an in-line station-to-station that intelligently maximizes the material usage of each Conestoga Everlast™ Log.

When a cabin gets added to the production schedule, the log specifications are programmed by the engineering department and the machines are automatically optimized for less than 1% waste.

The NOTCHER is one of many technologies used by Conestoga to minimize waste and improve energy efficiencies.  What would require multiple pieces of equipment, Conestoga is accomplishing with one streamline system.

Business investments like these contribute to our “GREEN” efforts and we are able to pass the savings along to our customers.

How We Sustain Our Environment

All of the wood utilized to produce a Conestoga Log Cabin kit is attained using Sustainable Forestry Techniques.  We only use timber from certified renewable forests, which means the trees were planted for timber purposes.  We never use timber from natural forests.

What is Sustainable Forestry

Sustainable forest management has to keep the balance between three main pillars: ecological, economic, and socio-cultural.  Successfully achieving sustainable forest management will provide integrated benefits to all, ranging from safeguarding local livelihoods to protecting the biodiversity and ecosystems provided by forests, reducing rural poverty and mitigating some of the effects of climate change. – Wikipedia
