Southern Group of State Foresters
We are a non-profit organization representing southern state forestry agencies
Our 15 members within the southeastern United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands collectively provide leadership, coordination, expertise and resources to sustain the economic, environmental, health and societal benefits of southern forests.
We deliver regional support for existing and emerging issues related to sustainable forest management, forest health, water resources, urban and community forestry, forest product markets, wildfire protection and disaster response.
