How To Transfer a Site?

Forestry allows you to move your imported Git branches from your sites to an organization and vice-versa.

Site or Branch?

When you import a branch from a repository, it creates a Forestry site. A site in Forestry is a Git branch, with settings, templates and access permissions.

Transfer a site

  1. Navigate to a site on your Dashboard (e.g. “My Sites”). Select the branch and click on the “…” options menu, and select “Transfer Branch”.
  2. Choose where you want to move this site: “My sites” or an “Organization”. When you select “Organization”, you are able to choose the destination from the dropdown menu, then click on “Transfer” to confirm.


You can only transfer sites to Organizations if your role for that Organization permits it. See user roles
