Good for you. Good for our Forests® 

Virginia SFI Implementation Committee


In Virginia, the SFI® Program is managed by the SFI Implementation Committee. The Virginia Forestry Association, located in Richmond, serves as the general administrator of the SFI program.

Each SFI Program participant that has forestry operations in Virginia is a member of the Committee. Also serving are representatives of the Virginia Department of Forestry, the Virginia Tech College of Natural Resources, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, and others from the forestry community who provide financial, technical and training assistance for the program.
