Thomasville-- "Save Our Forest" was formed after they learned that city and county officials are proposing to sell 200 acres of dense forest land on Airport Road in Thomas county to build a new industrial park.

The group says it would be a great loss.  "We realize the need for industry and development. We just think, a mature hardwood forest that we own is not the place to start this. We need to look very hard at other sites," said Jerry Turner, a Committee Member for  "Save Our Forest." 

The group is holding an informational meeting open to the public Thursday night at the Thomas University Campus Center at 6:30.
