Other Information

The Virginia Department of Forestry has been growing seedlings for Virginia landowners for 100 years. We offer a variety of pine and spruce species, such as Eastern white pine and loblolly pine, as well as dozens of hardwood varieties used to establish timber stands, pulpwood crops, Christmas tree plantations, wildlife habitats, stream bank stabilization, urban forests, biodiversity and improvement of watersheds. Pine and hardwood seed is sown and seedlings are visually inspected, harvested, hand-graded, labeled and packaged for delivery. Many of our hardwood species are grown from acorns and seeds collected by volunteers and donated to our nurseries. Virginia-grown seed generally produces trees that will grow well in our state.
