Preparing for Generation NEXT

$70* for up to 2 family members; $35* for each additional family member

New Kent Forestry Center, Providence Forge

Forests and farmland are valued for multiple reasons such as wildlife, privacy, recreation, timber, hunting, or scenic qualities. Are you prepared to pass the environmental and heirloom values rooted in your forest to the next generation? The cost of not planning and future tax burdens may put your land’s ownership in jeopardy. If you don’t plan, the government will plan for you. By researching and planning ahead of time, you can ensure your wishes are met and minimize the financial costs and emotional challenges while securing your woodland legacy.

The application process is closed.  Please contact Neil Clark, neclark@vt.edu, for details.

NoVA Urban Forestry Conference

Urban Forests for Your Health: How Trees Can Save Your Life

The purpose of this bi-annual conference is to present research relating to urban forests and human health and how it has been used, how it has been implemented. 

What results or changes have occurred as an application of the research?

 What are the connections between human health and the parks and greenspace that are available to them in their neighborhoods, schools and health facilities?

 How do we prepare the audience to be able to effectively communicate the important connections between urban forest and human health?

 Featured speakers include Dr. Michelle Kondo from the USDA Forest Service and Dr. Kathleen Wolf from the University of Washington.
