NRDC Works with Major Timber Buyer to help Save Southern Forests

November 16, 2010

Major timber buyer, Georgia-Pacific, has announced a new forestry policy that will increase protections for 90 million acres of forests through the Southeast. In consultation with the Natural Resources Defense Council and other environmental groups, GP's new policy commits them to no longer purchasing trees from Endangered Forests and Special Areas, or from new pine plantations established at the expense of natural hardwood forests.
