Robinson Lumber Company response
... Contrary to widely-held beliefs that “cutting down trees is bad for the environment” we believe that promoting the use of renewable resources is critical to the future of planet, and that there is no more obvious and prevalent renewable resource than wood... Wood products are our livelihood and as such we are keenly aware of threats to the industry. We work within industry organizations (ITTO, AIMEX, NHLA, NWFA) to promote the use of legal hardwood resources worldwide...We operate legally with a robust system for due diligence to protect us and our clients around the world from non-compliant timber... In this age of social media and fake news, perhaps it should come as no surprise that a single biased and counterfactual report can spawn five, soon to be six, related articles that somehow omit any of the subsequent responses provided by those accused, or other facts available in the public domain.
