The Georgia Forestry Association needs your support to develop a statewide campaign focused on educating Georgia voters about the importance of working forests, forest products and small forestry businesses to their daily lives.
GFA is building a statewide campaign focused on driving voter awareness through:
Developing a statewide grassroots network
Arming forestry leaders with information and tools
Educating media and key influencers
Ensuring the case for forestry and the referendum is heard
Amplifying our voice on social media
Building a broad coalition of supporters
The full weight of the forestry community will be needed to ensure our success. You can help by:
Signing up as a Grassroots Leader
Serve as a leader in your community
Financially supporting our campaign
Every dollar counts in growing our impact across the state
An ad valorem tax exemption for forestry and logging equipment would deliver much needed economic relief to a sector that is already under a tremendous amount of pressure. Support our campaign today by becoming a donor today!
It takes 8-10 pieces of equipment, including the trucks and trailers, for us to run just one logging crew, and the overall costs for that equipment is increasing every day. So, when you consider the tax bill on our equipment, it determines whether we purchase new equipment, keep running old equipment, or just give up all together. So, right now any break we can get will help.
