At Koetter Woodworking, the definition of “green” means so much more than sustainable forestry practices. We recognize that being good stewards of the forest does not end with the harvesting of timber; it follows the entire process, from tree to finished product. We like to think that the high standards we have established are not just green, but a Brighter Shade of Green!
