The Virginia Association of Forest Health Professionals (VAFHP) formed in 1991 at the height of the Virginia gypsy moth outbreak. This reflected the need for information exchange between the state and local coordinators who were administering gypsy moth spray programs. At that time, the group was known at the Association of Virginia Gypsy Moth Managers. In 2007, the name was changed in order to better reflect our broader concerns with many forest health issues affecting Eastern forests.
We meet annually to hear the latest on emerging pests, existing issues and other related forest ecology and forest health topics.
