Forest Certification

Genesis Forest Management can assist you in obtaining Forest Certification from one of the various certification programs offered in the United States. The two main certification programs for private forest landowners in Georgia is the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) and the American Tree Farm System (ATFS). Georgia also has a state Stewardship program.

Genesis Forest Management offers management plans that meet criteria for state stewardship programs. Our management plans also meet standards for enrolling forestland into the ATFS certification program. ATFS was recently awarded PEFC recognition by The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes. This designates ATFS as a recognized certification program for private forest landowners.
