Workforce Development Study

At the beginning of 2022, GFF partnered with the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia to facilitate a statewide labor study of Georgia’s forestry sector. Carl Vinson is researching how many workers are needed where, and when.

We facilitated a comprehensive study of Georgia’s forestry industry to act for the industry’s health now and into the future. Not only did the study identify current workforce issues, but it also helps forestry prepare for future obstacles by projecting its labor needs out five years.
