Georgia-Pacific’s Protecting Endangered Forests and Special Areas project mapped and ranked woodlands within more than a dozen Southern states, identifying 4.5 million acres that met the criteria as endangered forests and special areas. Georgia-Pacific will only buy fiber from these areas in unique situations where active forest management is needed to improve habitat for endangered, rare and/or vulnerable species.
