The Voice for Forestry

The Georgia Forestry Association (GFA) is the leading advocate for a healthy business and political climate for Georgia’s forest environment, forest landowners and forest-based businesses.

When GFA was founded in 1907, tree farming was a family enterprise, and land was passed from generation to generation. Building upon these family traditions, GFA was established as a continuation of this heritage and a love of the land. Georgia’s forests are vital to the lives of many state residents, from private landowners and foresters, to loggers and thousands of others employed by the forestry community.

The Georgia Forestry Association is committed to protecting our forests and their future. Read more →

The Association’s leadership is comprised of a member elected Board of Directors – representing various interests in the forestry community – and a smaller Executive Committee. The guiding principles listed below allow the Association to stay focused on its mission to ensure that it is the leading advocate for Georgia’s collective forestry community.
