ATLANTA, Feb. 25, 2020 -- Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp honored Atlanta-based CatchMark Timber Trust, Inc. (NYSE: CTT) earlier this month as a 2019 partner in the state’s Forestry for Wildlife Partnership, a program administered by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.  Gov.

Administered by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division, Forestry for Wildlife Partnership is a voluntary and participant-driven effort that encourages conservation of wildlife habitat on large private forestlands and provides public access to the properties for hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing, hiking and camping. The program was started in 1996 to recognize corporate landowners that went beyond the requirements of what, at the time, was the newly formed Sustainable Forestry Initiative (

Todd P. Reitz, CatchMark’s Chief Resources Officer, said: “CatchMark is proud to be a longtime participant in the Wildlife Partnership and we thank the State of Georgia and Gov. Kemp for this recognition.  We believe that conscientious forest management and sustainable practices serve investors and stakeholders by promoting a healthier environment while at the same time enhancing the potential market value of timberland assets. CatchMark is committed to conservation and providing a diverse range of habitats that benefit a variety of wildlife species within the context of intensive forest management.”
The Wildlife Resources Division recognized CatchMark for customizing timber harvest on a Sprewell Bluff WMA lease to support the reintroduction of red-cockaded woodpeckers, protecting habitat for endangered fringed campion and providing a conservation easement on 4,000 acres at Townsend WMA.

With ownership interests in approximately 271,500 acres across Georgia (as of 12/31/2019), CatchMark has been a part of the Wildlife Partnership since 2011.
