About

We help progressive brands and companies in the forest products industries acquire or maintain forestry chain-of-custody (CoC) certification, so they can demonstrate to stakeholders that their products are responsibly sourced, show their support of sustainable forestry and earn more revenue from the sale of certified sustainable forest products.  When expertise and integrity matter, clients choose Cherrywood Partners.

Andrew J. Ramirez, Founder and Senior Lead Auditor

I believe that companies should conduct business in a manner that respects the environment, champions social justice and delivers long-term financial sustainability. For over a decade, this philosophy has guided my firm Cherrywood Partners.

I have consulted for or audited hundreds of companies of all sizes and complexities.  I have experience with Forest Stewardship Council, Sustainable Forestry Initiative and PEFC certifications.  The standard requirements can be quite complex and difficult to understand and apply to your business.  As an advisor, I can help your organization develop a tailor-made chain-of-custody system.  This will save your organization time and resources. 

I have also developed relationships some of the largest and most-reputable certification bodies.  We offer virtual delivery options as well as on-site options to meet your needs.  My expertise can put your company on the fast-track to certification.
