The Southeastern Wood Producers Association (SWPA) is an
association whose sole purpose is to represent and support professional timber harvesting businesses. Since 1990 SWPA has been the leading voice for logging companies in Georgia and Florida. The SWPA board of directors have dedicated themselves to an important mission. The mission is to protect the interests and stability of reputable
harvesting-transport companies and to be a player in supporting proactive positions on issues that affect our industry.

Encourage responsible environmentalism

"cost of doing business"
Our "Mission Success" DEPENDS on our members,
Membership isn't something you have...it is something you DO.
As we continue to work on major goals, we are constantly
assisting wood producers in a number of ways. We are
as close as your telephone and have already proven that
our service more than off-sets the cost of dues.
We pledge to diligently search for solutions to your
problems with professionalism and dignity, and it is
in this spirit that we urge wood producers to "get
involved" by standing up and being counted as a
part of this organization.
