Georgia Forestry Association members receive Georgia Forestry Magazine four times per year. The magazine brings together writers and leaders from the Georgia Forestry Association, Georgia Forestry Commission and Georgia Sustainable Forestry Initiative, and the dynamic content is focused on keeping you connected to resources and empowered to make good decisions about your forestland asset.
On the cover: A builder with Seagate Mass Timber lowers a 30-foot glulam beam into place at 619 Ponce, Georgia’s first locally grown and sourced mass timber building near Ponce City Market.
In this issue:
- GFA and the Georgia Farm Bureau talk about the importance of ag and forestland tax programs and how they have supported conservation across the state.
- We focus on Georgia Forestry Foundation’s Seedlings to Solutions project that is centered around 619 Ponce and aimed at educating and inspiring Georgians to utilize more mass timber
- The Georgia Forestry Commission discusses the development of the Sustainable Development Carbon Registry, which is designed to allow developers to verify and trade carbon credits based on the use of sustainable building materials like mass timber
- The Sustainable Forestry Initiative discusses management tips for developing resilient landscapes
