Virginia has over 15.8 million acres of forestland, most of which will change ownership in the next 5-10 years. Real Forestry for Real Estate is part of a strategy to put sound forest management information into the hands of the new owners.
Whether you’re selling 5 acre or 1000 acre tracts, Real Forestry for Real Estate will provide you with practical information which may help increase the appeal of the property to your clients. No prior forestry knowledge is required. New Landowner Packets will be distributed to all interested participants.
