The Virginia Department of Forestry (VDOF) provides services to private landowners and charges fees for some of these services. These costs are considered partof the project expenses; as such, they can be in the cost-share computation. The VDOF will prepare a Forest Stewardship Plan or Revised Forest Stewardship Plan for a charge of $1.50 per acre for every planned acre, with a minimum charge of $200.00 per plan.

VDOF provides free of charge:

  • Needs determination and cost-share plan for planting projects, with cost share. This plan would include plant species, spacing and a mapof the area to be planted.
  • Check to confirm seedlings have been planted to approve cost share or AlternateManagement Plan.
  • Inspect the area to determine seedling survival and/or the need for furthertreatment, the winter following planting.
