Timber harvesting is used as a management tool to meet forest management objectives and to maintain healthy and sustainable forests. For private sales information, contact a registered consulting forester.

Large tracts of land are maintained and preserved by the State.

GFC manages several land properties owned by the State of Georgia. All of them operate under a multiple-use Forest Stewardship management plan taking into account the various wood product, wildlife, recreational, soil, water, aesthetic, historical, and cultural resources of the area. GFC only conducts timber sales from these state managed properties. Timber buyers must follow Georgia’s Forestry Best Management Practices to purchase timber from lands owned by the State of Georgia.
