Work with Qualified Professionals

When you’re ready to harvest your timber, it’s important to find a well-trained, professional logger. SFI provides support for the Georgia “Master Timber Harvester” program, a logger education program offered by the University of Georgia’s Center for Forest Business. Training and education programs in adjacent states are sponsored through their respective state forestry associations and universities.

Loggers that are designated Georgia Master Timber Harvesters (GAMTH) have participated in a two-day workshop that addresses key environmental, business management and safety issues. Workshop topics include sustainable forestry principles, forest stewardship, endangered species, Georgia’s Forestry Best Management Practices, and harvest planning. To renew and maintain their Master Timber Harvester designation, loggers must participate in Continuing Logger Education courses.
