Virginia's Sustainable Forestry Initiative® Program
Good for you. Good for our Forests® 

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 e-mailing Virginia SIC Coordinator, Sarah Kammer at  

Examples of such Inconsistent Practices would be deviations from 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 web site.

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