Like all of Georgia’s abundant forest lands, Washington County’s forests are the result of outstanding natural resources and dedicated human effort. Yellow pine grows well in the rich soil here, nurtured carefully season after season. And in Georgia, forestry and planting have been encouraged so that today more land is privately owned than a decade ago. In fact, today Georgia is #1 in the United States in privately owned forestland and #1 in producing tree seedlings; the state also plants more trees than it cuts yearly and produces the most sawn pine in the South.
Here in Washington County that forest abundance translates into abundant opportunity with success facilitated by a labor force that has been identified in recent economic analysis as optimum for the sector in size, skill, and affordability. Businesses in the industry are also supported by the efforts and resources of groups such as the Georgia Forestry Association.
