The Lacey Act, initially enacted in 1900, is the United States’ oldest national wildlife protection statute and serves as an anti-trafficking statute protecting a broad range of wildlife and wild plants. The Lacey Act makes it unlawful to import, export, transport, sell, receive, acquire or purchase any fish, wildlife or wild plants taken, possessed transported, or sold in violation of state, federal, Native American tribal, or foreign laws or regulations that are related to fish, wildlife, or wild plants.
With enactment of the 2008 Farm Bill (the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008), the Lacey Act was amended for the purpose of combating illegal logging and expanding the Lacey Act’s anti-trafficking protections to a broader set of plants and plant products.
Anyone who imports into the United States, or exports out of the United States, illegally harvested plants or products made from illegally harvested plants, including timber, as well as anyone who exports, transports, sells, receives, acquires or purchases such products in the United States, may be prosecuted. The defendant need not be the one who violated the foreign law; the plants or timber, and the products made from the illegal plants or timber, become “tainted” even if someone else commits the foreign law violation.
Grandview Products uses 99% domestic oak, maple, poplar and other wood products in the construction of its cabinets. In those rare cases where imported wood must be used, Grandview requires documentation that the wood has been legally obtained, according to the provisions of the Lacey Act generally and the 2008 Amendment specifically.
