Catskill WoodNet is a regional network of businesses that harvest and manufacture wood products from New York's Catskill Mountain Region. Through improved land stewardship in the New York City Watershed, our goal is to encourage a working landscape that connects people with local forest resources.

Our members label their products with the Pure Catskills trademark to illustrate a commitment to using watershed friendly practices, buying local and supporting a centuries old tradition of craftsmanship and care for the land in the Catskills. Pure Catskills is a registered trademark of the Watershed Agricultural Council.
