Nutrient Bank

Approximately 200 acres of this tract are enrolled in nutrient banking, a statewide Virginia program whereby agriculture acreage is converted to forest. Once converted, the acreage must remain in trees in perpetuity. The acreage enrolled was selected both for its suitability for the program as well as the newly forested land’s contribution to the wildlife goals of this tract

Climate

Central Virginia enjoys an agreeable four-season climate. Summers are warm and humid, and average temperatures in July and August are in the upper 80’s and low 90’s. Winter temps are generally in the 40’s, although they frequently dip lower for short periods in January and February. 

 

Spring and fall showcase Virginia at its best, and the brilliantly green countryside in May and stunning foliage of October are hard to compete with. During these seasons, temperatures consistently reach the 70’s during the daytime and cool off into the 50’s at night. Average annual rainfall is 43 inches and average annual snowfall is 19 inches.
