The Virginia Forest Landowner Education Program (VFLEP) helps Virginians keep their forests healthy and productive.
- preserving Virginia's land base;
- reducing exotic insects, plants and diseases;
- maintaining a diversity of game and non-game wildlife species;
- promoting the production of quality wood and non-timber forest products;
- generating public understanding and support for the management of Virginia's vast forest resources;
- building relationships between experienced and less-experienced private forest landowners; and
- encouraging dialogue and cooperation within Virginia's natural resource community and among private forest landowners.
VFLEP's Programs include:
- Short Courses

Programs are held year-round throughout the Commonwealth. To find an event near you, visit our events calendar. Programs are taught by a variety of natural resource professionals from private and state agencies and forest industry.
