"This is the kind of win-win partnership that makes everyone proud and shows the level of commitment to sustainability," said Fort Stewart garrison commander Col. Kevin Gregory. "Conserving land like this helps protect Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield's viability as the Army's premier power projection platform on the east coast. That's good for national defense and for the local economy, because it helps ensure that the installation will continue to be a source of jobs and economic growth. And it's good for quality of life because it protects greenspace for recreation and environmental health."About Rayonier Rayonier is a leading international forest products company with three core businesses: Forest Resources, Real Estate and Performance Fibers.
