Chain of Custody

All the logs that came into the mill at Kikori (see Living on a Log Raft and Palms of Kikori) had to be labeled with a code showing the species, the felling cycle/date, and the site of origin. This was done to insure that the communities weren't cutting more than they should, i.e. that they were only harvesting the annual growth of merchantable timber in their forests. This type of log labeling represents one step in the chain of custody process required for forest certification by the Forest Stewardship Council.
