The Georgia Forestry Foundation seeks to connect every Georgian to the state’s forests by sharing facts and experiences and fostering connections with the stewards of our forestland.
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.
