Helping move our industry forward

Forests have served as a foundation of the American economy since colonization. For centuries, scientists, business leaders and foresters have turned to trees for answers, and they have delivered essential products that literally built our great nation. As we navigate the current pandemic, our forests are once again positioned to address the needs of our society. AFC brings together those who have invested in forests and forest product manufacturing assets to empower them with vital information to address today’s challenges and find solutions that will further grow opportunities to leverage our country’s most abundant natural resource.

Empowering those working our forests

This conference is being hosted by the Georgia Forestry Association (GFA), which has served as the premiere advocate for working forests in Georgia since 1907. Working daily to promote a healthy business and political climate forest landowners, forest product manufacturers, and forest-based businesses, GFA is focused on driving value back to everyone who has invested in “dirt and steel” related to Georgia’s forest industry.
