The Purpose of the Qualified Forest Program is to encourage private forestland owners to manage their land in an economically viable and environmentally viable and environmentally sustainable manner. Landowners receive an exemption from local school operating taxes and/or exemptions from the uncapping of the taxable value of the property in the event of a change in ownership.

The District Forester (DC) can help landowners learn about the QFP program, refer landowners to forestry professionals that are able to write a QFP plan, and aid landowners in filling out the necessary paperwork for application to the QFP program.
