Virginia Department of Forestry Advisory
DOF is maintaining normal agency operations as much as possible through increased telework options for staff and staggered scheduling to minimize contact in office buildings.
Due to limited office staffing, we encourage you to contact staff before visiting an office.
Wildfire and Emergency Response
We ask that everyone use extra caution to avoid wildfires that would further expose emergency responders to risk unnecessarily.
If you’re a forest landowner and struggling during difficult times, we encourage you to pause, learn, and plan before you act with matters concerning your forestland.
Get started with forest planning.

Enjoy Nature… Virtually
While research tells us that being around trees is good for our health, even views of trees outside our windows has a positive impact on our health. During these times when you may be self-isolating, remember to take a forest break by looking out your window. And if your window doesn’t have treescapes, digital images of nature can also reduce stress and anxiety.
