Educational Internet Application Development and Hosting

The Center has designed and developed some of the most recognizable web interfaces/brands for the fields of forestry, forest health, invasive species, natural resources, agriculture and entomology. We believe that web interface and application design must be graphically pleasing and intuitive to provide information to the users as quickly as possible.

The purpose of the Georgia Forest Productivity Publication Series website is to provide forest landowners and managers with up-to-date, science-based information focused on silvicultural practices that improve tree survival and growth. The publications available on this website are the results of field studies and demonstrations. The information is intended to guide and support best management decisions on forestlands by landowners and forest managers. The authors of this website recommend contacting your state agency service forester, a consulting forester, Extension forester, or forest industry landowner assistance forester before implementing silvicultural practices. Each tract of forestland is different and should be evaluated on an individual basis.
