(This amendment provides funding for additional staffing at the Department of Forestry for the continued development of Virginia's forestry industry. With threats of tariffs and changing markets, landowners and the forestry industry can better respond with resource data analysis, enhanced market development, additional markets for low grade timber and residual byproducts, assistance with forest certification requirements to increase value, and development of additional alternative forest products.)
