GFC’s Sustainable Community Forestry Program (SCFP) provides technical support to cities, counties, elementary schools, college campuses, home owners and nonprofit organizations.

With funding provided by the US Forest Service, GFC assists communities with:

  • tree board development
  • tree ordinance revision
  • becoming a Tree City USA, Tree Campus USA, or Tree Line USA
  • storm mitigation planning
  • tree care training
  • Arbor Day programs
  • i-Tree analyses.

GFC works in partnership with the Georgia Tree Council to connect communities and partners with a qualified urban forestry consultant. The consultant helps manage projects and provide hands-on help from start to finish.
