Framing Forest Products as a Sustainable Solution
Increased demand for forest products provides economic incentive for private landowners, which helps to keep forests as forests. GFF is investing time and resources in promoting the use of forest products by educating decision makers and the general public of the added benefits that forests provide.
Enhancing Supply Chain Efficiency and Profitability
Georgia has one of the most productive wood baskets in the world. The long-term resilience and sustainability of our forests depends on the competitiveness of the entire forestry supply chain. GFF is supporting landowners and forestry businesses through research that impacts their efficiency and productivity while drives positive change.
Connecting Georgians to Jobs in Forestry & Forest Product Manufacturing
From GED to PhD, there is a role for everyone to play in the forestry community. The forest industry supports the jobs for more than 143,000 Georgians, and forestry is the state’s second largest employer based on wages and salaries. GFF provides leadership and education opportunities that connect Georgians to forestry careers.
