Harvested sites are either artificially or naturally regenerated. Sustainable forest management practices create numerous jobs in the local communities.
St. Joe's sustainable forest management practices benefit local communities economically, socially and educationally. We help create jobs, sponsor a variety of forestry-related charitable organizations and offer outdoor recreational activities on our lands such as hunting, fishing and bird watching. Our foresters also help improve forestry and conservation education for all ages.
St. Joe recognizes the business imperative of protecting the region's most important assets – its natural resources. St. Joe has placed more than 170,000 acres—or more than 250 square miles—into permanent conservation since 1997. Many of Northwest Florida’s state parks, state forests and wildlife refuges were created in part with St. Joe land.
