Reforestation of Timberlands Program Updated:03/2022

Financial assistance is available for growing pines through the Virginia Reforestation of Timberlands program. This statewide program managed by the Virginia Department of Forestry provides cost-share assistance to landowners for pine reforestation, and is funded by the forest industry in Virginia with matching funds from the Commonwealth of Virginia's General Fund.

The Reforestation of Timberlands (RT) program has been helping Virginia landowners grow pines for more than 40 years. It can cost from $70 to $200 per acre to put in a crop of pines. The RT program reimburses landowners for a portion of the costs associated with getting pines started right. Your VDOF Forester can help you apply for the forest management practices that are best suited for your property.

RT Funds are allocated to VDOF work areas throughout the state and RT funding is approved and obligated based upon the date the trees were havested, thenon a "first come, first served" basis. Contact your local forester to complete and submit an application even if funds have been obligated. If an approved project is cancelled, funds may become available. If your application has been submitted to the local forester, it is possible your project may be approved and funded.
