The West Virginia Forest Stewardship Program offers technical and financial assistance to private landowners interested in planning and managing their forestland for multiple-use benefits, including wood products, wildlife, recreation and aesthetics. Eligible landowners may receive up to 75 percent of the cost of developing the plan for the forested acres of the property.
Landowners may enroll in the Program by:
- completing the Forest Stewardship Program Plan Application, the Vendor Registration and Disclosure Statement form, and the W-9 Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification form
- selecting a private or public certified professional Forest Stewardship forester or technician
- submitting the application, vendor registration and W-9 to the Division of Forestry.
Landowners must receive written approval from the Division of Forestry prior to beginning any field work.
