Jamaica Tree Growers Association
Interest in Forestry: central
The Jamaican Tree Growers Association was formed to promote the private development and management of trees for commercial and conservation purposes.
As a lobby mechanism, the JTGA represents the interests and concerns of members, and enables them to take advantage of opportunities in agro-forestry, urban forestry and commercial timber production.
By presenting a common front, JTGA’s membership will be able to contribute to the heightened visibility of the private sector in forestry development and environmental enhancement.
