Anyone driving down Georgia’s highways knows it’s like a painting brought to life — tall, vibrant, strong pine trees line the road, setting the backdrop for a pleasant journey. But forests are more than a pretty view — covering two-thirds of our state, Georgia’s forests serve as critical infrastructure, the backbone to our way of life. … That is why I commend Gov. Nathan Deal for promoting the use of products from Georgia’s responsibly managed forests in state construction — and calling for equal recognition of all credible forest certification standards, a tool to ensure forest products come from responsibly managed forests.
