With a wide range of biomes from Atlantic Ocean Coastal areas and beaches, to Riparian and Marine wetlands, mountains, semi-deserts and Georgia is about 43% forest!
You’ll get the best results when you choose salt-tolerant, coastal trees and native trees for Georgia that can handle hurricanes, drought, sandy soil, heat and humidity throughout the year.
