Getting Started

Sound forest management begins with determining your objectives: determining what you have on your land and developing a forest management plan. A professional forester can assist you with this and answer any questions you might have.

A free inspection of your woodlands can be arranged by the West Virginia Tree Farm Committee.

To qualify for Tree Farm certification your woodlot must be:

  • Ten acres or more.
  • Managed for the production of timber and other forest products.
  • Protected from fire, insects, disease, erosion, and destructive grazing.
