Georgia-Pacific Adds Wildlife Conservation Area To Its Albany, NY, Facility

Georgia-Pacific LLC, parent company of GP PRO, has announced the establishment of a new wildlife conservation area at its Albany, NY, lumber plant.

The 320,000-square-foot facility opened in 2020 and is part of a sprawling 225-acre site, WALB-TV reports. The 38-acre wildlife conservation area surrounds the mill and includes more than two dozen bluebird nesting boxes. Georgia-Pacific has also planted 36 acres of loblolly pines and an additional two acres of wildflowers and pollinator plants.
