Virginia Ginseng Law and Regulations
Page 2


• No license is required to harvest wild ginseng on private land in Virginia, but permission must be obtained from the landowner or managing authority.

• Anyone in Virginia who purchases ginseng for resale state must obtain a dealer’s license from the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

• The harvest season for wild ginseng in Virginia is from September 1 to December 31 each year, except that this does not apply to harvest on one’s own land. Ginseng harvested during this season must be sold to a dealer by March 31 or be certified by the state.

• Virginia’s ginseng coordinator recommends that wild ginseng be harvested only after the berries are red, and that harvested plants have at least 4 prongs. The state’s ginseng coordinator also recommends that seeds from harvested wild ginseng be planted at the site of digging.

• The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Office of Plant Industry Services, Endangered Species Coordinator, serves as the state’s ginseng coordinator, and can be reached at (804) 786-3515 or by addressing correspondence to:

P.O. Box 1163
Richmond, VA 23218

• At present, Permits are not being issued for the collection of ginseng from national forests or parks due to concerns over the viability of ginseng.

• The removal of ginseng plants from local or state lands is generally prohibited without obtaining written permission beforehand. Individuals should contact the appropriate local or state authority responsible for management of the public lands to determine if ginseng harvesting is permissible and the permits those authorities may require.
