Forestry Community Launches New Magazine to Tell the Story of Georgia’s Working Forests

Georgia Forestry Magazine (GFM) was printed and distributed to thousands of forest landowners, forestry-related businesses and forestry enthusiasts this week. The magazine is focused on telling the story of Georgia’s working forests and forest product industries.

GFM is published by HL Strategy in partnership with the Georgia Forestry AssociationGeorgia Forestry Commission and the Georgia SFI Implementation Committee. The editorial content and design of the publication is focused on highlighting the landowners and producers who steward the land, and the manufacturers who are promoting innovative uses of wood. 

The design direction for the publication was set by a nationally-acclaimed designer. In addition, well-known writers were assigned feature stories about private forest landowners and about the sustainability of Georgia’s forests. Others covered departments of the magazine focusing on the economy, environment, recreation, government affairs, and innovation. Finally, a photojournalist whose work appears in national magazines and newspapers will captured images reflecting the breadth of the forestry community.

Access to the digital version of the magazine can be found here. If you have questions about advertising or how you can be involved, contact Director of Communications and Public Relations Matt Hestad at 678-378-3513 or at
