Forestland and natural resources are essential to the citizens of Virginia making it crucial that we, as a Commonwealth, take an all-agency and all-organization approach to managing the forests of Virginia. Wildfires, insects, and diseases know no boundaries… we must all work together to protect and manage Virginia’s forestlands and natural resources.

The Virginia Department of Forestry works closely with numerous agencies and leading professional organizations in forestry and natural resources to deliver comprehensive research-based information to Virginia citizens, promote sustainable forest management, and to manage and protect Virginia’s natural resources.
