Quail Habitat Recovery Cost-Share Program Updated:06/2021

The Forestry Quail Program is a partnership program between the Virginia Department of Forestry and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries that provides funding assistance to landowners interested in quail-friendly forestry practices. Funding is only available in Virginia’s fifteen Quail Priority Area Counties (PDF).

Currently, five practices are available:

  1. Managing understory woody vegetation in thinned forestland with legume-friendly herbicides,
  2. Commercial thinning of small acreage stands,
  3. Establishment of native, diminished pine species such as longleaf and shortleaf pine,
  4. Pre-commercial thinning,
  5. Prescribed burning.

For more information, please contact your local Department of Forestry staff and Private Lands Biologist to get started.
