Winners of the 2016 Land Conservation and Tree Preservation Awards were recognized during a public ceremony held in the Fairfax County Government Center board auditorium on Jan. 27, 2017.

The annual awards program is sponsored by the Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services and Land Development Services in cooperation with the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District and the Fairfax Tree Commission.

The Land Conservation Awards program was established in the early 1970s to provide an incentive for developers to reduce erosion at their construction sites and to publicly recognize erosion and sedimentation (E&S) plans that are correctly implemented and maintained. The program is managed by Skip Raynor, a code specialist in Land Development Services. Winners were selected by judges from the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District and the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. Sixteen active construction sites were nominated.

The Fairfax County Tree Commission celebrated the winners of the Tree Preservation and Planting Awards, which recognizes developers who preserve trees and incorporate landscaping into their sites. The top inspectors and plan reviewers from Land Development Services were also recognized.

Best practices from the winning projects were highlighted during the awards presentation.
