Log Grading is Green
Our log grading program is at the heart of our quality assurance controls and good stewardship of the forest resource. The log grader selects the appropriate use of engineering stress levels associated with a particular grade, size and species of log: thus resulting in the most efficient utilization of building logs and timbers at their highest rated capacity.

A log home's shear beauty and strength combined with superior energy efficiency and durability of a log home make it one of the best bases for the national push to go "green." For many years Log Cabin Homes has been committed to protecting the environment and our bountiful American forest resources as a log home manufacturer.
Our role in preserving the legacy of log home living and as a log home manufacturer demands that we take a leadership position in efforts to maintain and expand our precious natural resources.
We support reforestation programs through the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
With our dedicated partners we help to plant over 1.5 billion seedlings in the United States each year. These efforts include the reestablishment of appropriate species to ensure continued healthy ecological diversity while meeting the needs of wildlife and industry.
By taking these proactive steps to achieve success in conservation and renewal, we are striving to help preserve the natural heritage of log home living and the pioneering American spirit for future generations.
