 From Forest
  Photography by Alan Mothner
Every day — regardless of where we live and whether we realize it or not — we rely on forests.
More than giving us clean air to breathe
and clean water to drink, forests give us food, shelter and products essential to our modern lives. Yet, just as many kids think that food comes from the grocery store, we are disconnected from the origin of these invaluable benefits we need for our everyday survival, comfort and progress: Georgia’s 22 million acres of privately owned forestland.
This photo essay traces those benefits back to the source and shows how they get from the forest to your home.
