Sustainable Forestry Initiative

Georgia Forestry Community Habitat for Humanity Project

Georgia’s forestry community is coming together to build a Habitat for Humanity home in Macon, Georgia in early 2013.  Join with the Georgia SFI Implementation Committee, Georgia Forestry Association Emerging Leaders, Georgia Forestry Association, Georgia Forestry Foundation, Georgia Forestry Commission, Georgia Chapter-Society of American Foresters, Georgia Tree Farm Program, and Southeastern Wood Producers . . .  and the homeowners, as we build a home with Georgia-grown materials, manufactured in Georgia mills.  In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor into building their Habitat house and the houses of others.  We will harvest from Georgia land, mill at Georgia manufacturers, build a home, and replant the forest for the next generation.  Join us as we DEMONSTRATE the benefits of our state’s abundant, sustainable, renewable forests.  For more information, call 706-542-7691.
