There are more trees in the U.S. now than there were 100 years ago (while the population has tripled). For ever one tree Georgia-Pacific uses, at least one is regrown.
Forests for the future
Forests protect air and water quality, serve as habitat for wildlife,
provide recreational, spiritual and cultural uses, deliver carbon
benefits, and offer natural resources to make products people
want and need. At Georgia-Pacific, we work to use these resources
efficiently, source responsibly, protect endangered areas, and support
wildlife conservation and biodiversity. It is all part of our commitment
to helping maintain healthy forests for generations ahead.
