The SFI Program in Virginia provides a procedure for monitoring the performance of SFI Program participants. 

Anyone can report perceived Inconsistent Practices to the SFI Program Administrator, Virginia Forestry Association at (804)-278-8733, by writing to the Virginia Forestry Association, 3808 Augusta Avenue, Richmond VA 23230-3910, or emailing vfa@vaforestry.org


Examples of such Inconsistent Practices would be deviations from the SFI Forest Management Standard, including situations that do not follow Virginia's Best Management Practices (BMP) guidelines. 


A copy of Virginia's BMP guidelines, Forestry Best Management Practices for Water Quality, is available at the Virginia Department of Forestry website. 


The following chart illustrates the procedure that is followed to investigate such complaints in Virginia:
