Sustainable Development of Forestlands Project

A Virginia Tech project to look at sustainable approaches to development.

The primary intent of the project was to draw upon the knowledge of those who have written about:

  • the ecological function and structure of forested ecosystems;
  • the potential hazards associated with developing mountainous terrain;
  • the opportunities to create highly livable and life-sustaining residential developments; and,
  • the potential to employ low-impact development techniques in new developments.

Through this project website we desire to promote more sustainable approaches to development, particularly where forest and farmland resources are involved.

Includes sections on:

  • Sustainable Forestland Planning and Design
  • Cluster Development in Forestland Settings
  • Improving the Subdivision Review Process
  • Model Ordinance Provisions
  • Resources for Developers
