Here at Southern Forest World we are dedicated to telling the past & present story of forestry in SE Georgia. People tend to look at trees and just take then for granted, but here at Southern Forest World we want to introduce you to a fascinating and wonderful new world out there that’s at everyones fingertips.

Trust us when we say that you’ll never look at a tree the same way again, once you’ve visited our tree museum & learning center. 

We have so much to see and do:

  • Numerous exhibits
  • Indoor tree
  • Talking tree
  • Outdoor play area
  • Spiral staircase to second level
  • Small gift shop

PLUS we’re home to the world famous Stuckie, the mummified dog.

We are a non-profit organization that tells of the history of the forestry and the many ways we use the materials from the forest.

You may call 912.285.4056 or 912.550.1798 (cell) to schedule a tour.
You can also have a party outside business hours by calling and setting up date and time.

PLUS We have a small gift shop where you can buy t-shirts, coloring books, wood carved bowls and animals, with a variety of other gift items.

We had a great time looking at the different displays of agriculture and animals, climbing the “tree” to the second floor. It was awesome discovering the mummified dog, playing outside on the shady playground, digging for dinosaurs in the sandbox, and seeing all of the huge living and nonliving trees. Would be a great place for toddler groups, homeschool groups, social clubs, business lunches, school field trips, and church groups or book clubs.

Simply the best! Highly recommend a visit to see Stuckey!

I took my granddaughter to Southern Forest World and we both loved it.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that they have information and things to see for all ages rather than childish and boring for the parents or too much interesting adult information that the kids get fidgety and want to go.
It’s an interesting place to visit, and not what I expected, and would recommend it to anyone.

We “accidentally” found southern forest world on valentine’a day. Our plan was to leave the miss swampfest pageant my daughter was in and drive on to Florida, until we spotted the train. Lol. We turned around and had the best unexpected adventure of the day! This is a great place to bring the kids! It’s full of information and eye catching exhibits! There’s an outside playground, we loved the spider web! there’s an indoor tree with a spiral staircase inside and a gift shop! So many wonderful exhibits and the manager was so sweet! I wish we could have made it back this weekend for the Arbor Day celebration, I know it will be a blast for everyone!
