Virginia Forest Landowner Education

    VFLEP Picture

The Virginia Forest Landowner Education Program's (VFLEP) services are designed to enable forest landowners to meet their ownership objectives through sound forest stewardship and sustainable forestry practices.  VFLEP is a multi-agency educational initiative coordinated by Virginia Tech's Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation.

Specific goals of VFLEP include: preserving Virginia's land base, reducing exotic insects, plants and diseases; maintaining a diversity of game and non-game wildlife species, promoting the production of quality wood and non-timber forest products, generating public understanding and support for the management of Virginia's vast forest resources, building relationships between experienced and less-experienced private forest landowners, and encouraging dialogue and cooperation within Virginia's natural resource community and among private forest landowners.
