The Georgia SIC, along with landowners, industry, state agencies, foresters, loggers, and others, received $5,000 toward a Habitat for Humanity home build in Macon, GA. The home-build will be part of a video story of the forestry cycle from seedling to forest to mill to products and replanting to begin the cycle anew.
Supporting the SFI Standard
The project will support SFI 2010-2014 Standard Objective 17: Community Involvement in the Practice of Sustainable Forestry, including Performance Measure 17.2 requiring that program participants support and promote public outreach, education and involvement related to sustainable forestry management.
In addition to the Georgia SFI Implementation Committee, partners include Georgia Forestry Association Emerging Leaders; Georgia Forestry Commission; Georgia Forestry Foundation; Georgia Tree Farm Committee; Georgia Division-Society of American Foresters; and Southeastern Wood Producers Association.
