Ipe Depot sells FSC Ipe for a variety of applications. At Ipe Depot we offer our customers a wide variety of certified FSC Ipe products that we obtain direct from lumber mills across South America. As a FSC Chain of Custody company, we work in direct contact with lumber mills through our FSC representative to make sure the Ipe products we are selling are harvested responsibly. Since we are direct importers of all of our FSC Ipe Decking you can be certain that the FSC wood you purchase is of the utmost quality.

The Forest Stewardship Council ( FSC ) was established in 1993 to promote responsible forest management around the world. In over a decade, the FSC has set up offices in over 46 countries to become the worldwide leader overseeing responsibly harvested materials.
