Rayonier First Corporate Sponsor for Forestry Conclave at ABAC

TIFTON— When 300 college and university students from across the south visit Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College on March 22-24 for the Forestry Conclave, Rayonier will help to pave the way.

ABAC Chief Development Officer Deidre Martin said Rayonier is the first corporate sponsor for the 61st annual event which involves timber sports competition.

“ABAC is very excited about hosting the 61st Forestry Conclave in March,” Martin said. “This is a tremendous opportunity for the forestry program at ABAC, and we are grateful to Rayonier for stepping up as our first corporate sponsor for the event.”

Rayonier, a Loblolly Pine Level sponsor, is one of the largest private landowners in the U.S. The company owns, leases, and manages approximately 2.7 million acres of highly-productive timberlands in the U.S. and New Zealand to supply timber to a wide variety of markets including pulp, paper, lumber, renewable energy production and other wood products.

Martin said that sponsorship funds will help to cover the cost of hosting the event and purchasing necessary equipment such as axes, saws, and personal protective wear.
