Promote Sustainable Stewardship Being A Tree Farmer
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Virginia Tree Farmer!
How to Get the ATFS certification
Welcome Packet From ATFS
Once the property is certified, you will receive a welcome packet from ATFS, a certificate, and other information from the Virginia Tree Farm Committee, and you will be able to request a nationally recognized green and white Tree Farm sign to display on your property. Your Tree Farm Inspector may visit your Tree Farm on occasion or at your request to complete an optional inspection.
Inspection & Sampling
ATFS selects a random sample of Tree Farms each year that require an inspection and a different random sample every four years that require a third-party Assessment. If your Tree Farm is selected for either of these, you must be willing to work with the inspector/assessor to allow completion.
Given the information above, if you are interested in moving forward with ATFS certification, please complete this questionnaire.
