About Us

Enhancing the Value of Georgia’s
Forestry Sector

Since 1907, the Georgia Forestry Association has served as the premiere advocate for working forests in Georgia, working daily to promote a healthy business and political climate for forest landowners, forest product manufacturers and forest-based businesses.

GFA is focused on driving value back to everyone who has invested in “dirt and steel” related to forestry in Georgia. That includes the entire supply chain, from loggers and log-truckers to forestry consultants, seedling nurseries and professional service firms.

No matter how you are connected to the industry, we are committed to enhancing the value of your investment in forestry by keeping you protected, connected and empowered.

Vision & Core Principles

Our work is centered around our core principles of protecting private property rights, ensuring healthy markets for forest products and securing sensible taxes and regulations.
