Homan Industries owns a pine sawmill located in Fulton, MS that sources southern pine logs primarily from northeastern Mississippi and northwestern Alabama. The sawmill site also contains dry kilns, a planer mill and treating plant. The procurement staff does not buy direct purchase stumpage so all of the input is gatewood.

In addition, a subset of SFI obligations to promote sustainable forestry practices, to seek legal compliance, and to incorporate continual improvement systems were reexamined during the audit. Use of the SFI logo and the requirement to provide a public of audit reports were also reviewed.
