Sustainable Forestry Initiative

New information and features

Bring a hammer and nails. Georgia’s forestry community is coming together to build a Habitat for Humanity home in Macon in early 2013. The Georgia SFI Implementation Committee is one of several forestry community groups sponsoring the build. “We’ll provide a home for a family in need, while highlighting Georgia grown and manufactured building products,” said said Larry Spillers, SFI Implementation Committee Chairman from Jordan Forest Products. A shopping trip with the family will highlight products made from wood.

The entire project will be captured on video to help demonstrate sustainability from the harvesting of trees from a Georgia forest and manufacturing at Georgia mills to building a home and replanting the forest for the next generation.
