International Regulation – ISPM 15
Due to international regulations, heat treatment is an increasing area of concern for companies that ship products using wood pallets and wood materials. The International Export Standard, ISPM 15, requires that all wood packaging material be heat-treated at a core temperature of 56 degrees Celsius for a minimum of 30 minutes or require that its fumigated with methyl bromide to a prescribed specification.. This regulation eliminates the presence of pests found in the wood used, thereby protecting crops and forests in other areas around the world.
Trumbull Forest Products specializes in the heat treatment of wood used for shipping in order to comply with ISPM 15 as well as ensure the safety of forests and crops in all destinations.

“I believe you must do your homework up front before you hire any company. I worked through the Ohio Forestry Association to get names of companies that could bid on harvesting my land. After a very thorough bidding process, I chose Trumco. Working with Trumco proved to be an excellent experience. Dave and I walked the property marking trees, and Trumco did exactly as I wished. Plus, they did a great job of cleaning up and didn’t leave any deep ruts. After my experience, I didn’t hesitate to recommend Trumco to others.”
“The people at Trumco are very reliable and good to deal with. Trust is key because there are many less-than-reputable foresters out there and people have to be careful. Trumco wants to build a relationship with you. They aren’t always looking to clear-cut the land for a quick profit. They select the mature trees only for harvesting, so they do what’s best for the land, for you, and for them. Because of my positive experience with Trumco, I have recommended them to several other landowners.”
“We started doing business with Jim Bertin as our forestry consultant in 1989. Since meeting Jim and the people at Trumco, we have used them on an on-going basis every 2-3 years. Trumco select cuts our land based on our wishes. There are a lot of fly-by-night operations out there and we’ve heard many horror stories. When you choose to have your trees harvested, you must employ experts to handle the job properly. Jim Bertin and Trumco are experts.”
“I have had Tumco cut two pieces of property for me so far. I was so satisfied with the first cut that I called them back to cut the second property for me six months later. Trumco performed selective cutting on both pieces of land. I was very impressed with the care they took with my property. Trumco worked very quickly and professionally and did an outstanding job. I’m 100% satisfied and have recommended Trumco to two of my neighbors.”
