In the U.S., total forest area increased by 18 million acres between 1990 and 2020; equal to 1,200 NFL Football fields every today.    

Since 2020, GP has planted over 2.5 million trees across the U.S. through our partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation.

Forests for the future
Forests protect air and water quality, serve as habitat for wildlife,
provide recreational, spiritual and cultural uses, deliver carbon
benefits, and offer natural resources to make products people
want and need. At Georgia-Pacific, we work to use these resources
efficiently, source responsibly, protect endangered areas, and support
wildlife conservation and biodiversity. It is all part of our commitment
to helping maintain healthy forests for generations ahead.
