Georgia’s managed forests are an essential part of the economic and environmental ecosystems of our state. The Georgia Forestry Foundation (GFF) was founded in 1989 to support the long term sustainability of the state’s working forests, which cover nearly two thirds of the land area in the state. Each day, Georgians rely on those forests for their livelihood, it is in the air they breathe, the products they use, and it even has an important role in providing the water they drink. Together we have an opportunity to be stewards of this precious resource, and this opportunity is now.
Board of TrusteesThe Georgia Forestry Foundation is governed by a body of trusted advisors that represent a broad range of forestry and natural resource sectors across the state.
