Your tax dollars can support the education efforts of the Virginia Department of Forestry. Our landmark state forests are managed to sustain multiple natural resources and benefits, including research, tree improvement, forestry management, hardwood management, water quality and much more.
Conservation practices protect wetlands, enhance critical wildlife habitats, and preserve unique natural areas for biodiversity. These conservation practices provide long-term applied research for restoration and reforestation of native species.
Demonstration areas provide private forest landowners with practical, effective solutions to their resource management needs.
Recreation opportunities and conservation education programs are available year-round, in all seasons to any age or experience level.
