Georgia-Pacific works with others in the forestry and environmental community to support the practice of sustainable forestry on all lands.
Logger Training and Forest Management
Georgia-Pacific requires that wood suppliers and loggers be trained in sustainable forestry practices in the United States. Georgia-Pacific supports Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI)-approved logger training through membership in SFI Implementation Committees in more than a dozen states. Since 1995, more than 130,000 logging professionals have been trained through SFI-approved training programs. In addition, we share our forest management and stewardship knowledge with all the landowners from whom we buy wood and fiber.
Georgia-Pacific's Ontario, Canada, forest operations adhere to applicable laws for both Crown and private land. Ontario has rigorous laws and regulations in place for forest operations to promote sustainability, and protect habitat and water quality. Loggers take annual training to support Provincial best management practices for forest operations on Crown and private land.
