There is no doubt that the age of sustainable forestry and improved forestry practices have made wood Georgia's super-crop. However, it is interesting to think that most Georgia residents have no idea how much impact forestry has on the state's economy, much less the money it could be saving them in tax dollars. 

According to the Georgia Forestry Commission (GFC), in 2010 Georgia had approximately 24.4 million acres of timberland which is the second highest in the nation next to Oregon. The forest industry in Georgia also produced $16.9 billion in total revenue and provided 48,519 total jobs. Furthermore, in 2009, the total economic impact of the forest industry in Georgia was approximately 27.2 billion.

It may be an unusual business in a surprising location, however, Jae Lee, native South Korean, founder and CEO of Georgia Chopsticks, LLC thinks that Americus, Georgia, just happens to be the perfect place for his business. 

With the demand for wood products in Asia at an all time high and a lack of wood supply, Lee determined that there is a new market for chopstick manufacturing in the U.S. Most chopstick manufacturers in China use wood from the Poplar tree to supply the need for approximately 63 billion chopsticks a day. In order to help meet this demand, Lee decided that it is more economical to make unfinished chopsticks that are then shipped to China and sold wholesale to companies that finish and package the product in order to sell it to stores and restaurants.
