2+

Keeping forests as forests

Through strong demand markets

Enviva produces sustainable forest products in the Southeast U.S., where private forest landowners are growing 40 percent more wood than they remove every year. Enviva does not source from forests that will be converted to another land use. In fact, we provide landowners with a key market for their low-grade wood. The broader forest products sector supports more than 2 million jobs in the United States.
