About Us

“Being responsible in everything one does, from the forest to a finished building”

Certified Wood Products, Inc. is a new kind of forest products company. In the forest products business, it is no longer enough to offer only the highest quality products, fair prices, and careful service. Being responsible in everything one does, from the forest to a finished building, must be a vital consideration in everything that we do. CWP has risen to this new challenge: our goal is to make life easy for designers, builders, and retail lumber companies who need cost effective and environmentally responsible forest products.

Our values are firmly rooted in the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) “green” building systems of the U.S. Green Building Council.

Dan Haugen is President of Certified Wood Products, Inc. A graduate of the University of Minnesota College of Natural Resources, Dan owned and operated Haugen Lumber Company, a manufacturer of semi-finished forest products, for 25 years. After selling this business in 2000, he founded Certified Wood Products to ensure that the values in which he most believed — responsibility that is market competitive in every imaginable way — remained a vital part of the forest products industry.

Certified Wood Products has provided material for thousands of LEED projects and we are eager to help with yours. Because project needs can vary greatly, we make every effort to source and deliver nearly any FSC®-certified product, no matter how unusual or hard to find.
