SUPPORT SMALL FORESTRY BUSINESSES!

VOTE ‘YES’ ON REFERENDUM A

On the November General Election Ballot, Georgia voters will have the opportunity to support an ad valorem tax exemption for equipment used in reforestation, harvesting and production — a benefit extended to the owners of agriculture / farm equipment for decades. Hear more about this exemption and the much needed relief it will provide to this critical sector.

We Need Your Support!

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.

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.
