Data Source and Calculation
The agency uses a team of professional forestry staff to annually evaluate tract information following tree harvests. Samples of total annual logging harvests are selected for the auditing team to measure. The Department of Forestry (DOF) applies the sample data to overall performance in Virginia. The annual reportable result is expressed as a percentage of those tracts that have a reportable active sedimentation problem issue identified on-site. The results are based on a sample size of 240 tracts per year.
