Where Does GreenLink Operate?

"All property in the GreenLink Forest Resources Group must be located in either the states of North Carolina, South Carolina or Georgia in the Lower Atlantic Coastal Plain, North Atlantic Coastal Plain, or Piedmont physiographic regions within these three states"

The GreenLink Forest Stewardship Group will be structured with a Type 1 FSC® Group Structure with two subsets of forest management groups. All property in the GreenLink Forest Resources Group must be located in either the states of North Carolina, South Carolina or Georgia in the Lower Atlantic Coastal Plain, North Atlantic Coastal Plain, or Piedmont physiographic regions within these three states.

The total forestland ownership under one legal entity must be at least 75 acres or approximately 30 hectares but no more than 20,000 acres or approximately 8100 hectares. Cultivated fields, certain water impoundments, home sites and other non-forested areas should not be included in the total forested acres to be certified. The forestland must be a “working” forest with active forest management occurring on a regular basis, for example a Group Member would have a reasonably up-to-date management plan, periodic expenditures and income, or a history of using professional consultation. For the purposes of GreenLink Forest Stewardship Group, small family forests must be less than 1000 hectares (2740 acres) in size. Those properties that are larger than 1000 hectares (2740 acres) in size are considered to be in the large landowner subset and are divided into either the large private landowner or the corporate landowner.
