In December 2016, the Virginia Department of Forestry published the 2016 State of the Forest, the department’s most recent annual report of the Commonwealth’s forests. The report covers forest trends, ecosystem services, conservation, management, water quality, forest health, research, industry and markets, and urban and community forestry. Access to the report PDF is available online at http://www.dof.virginia.gov/infopubs/index.htm; previous years’ reports are available there, too.
You can contact the Department at 900 Natural Resources Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22903; (434) 977-6555.
