TAP is administered by the Farm Service Agency (FSA) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). To be considered an eligible loss:

  • Eligible trees, bushes, or vines must have suffered more than a 15 percent mortality loss in a stand (adjusted for normal mortality) due to an eligible natural disaster;
  • Mortality loss on a stand of eligible trees, bushes, or vines is based on:
    • Each eligible disaster event, except for losses due to plant disease; and
    • For plant disease, the time period as determined by the FSA for which the stand is infected.
  • The loss must not have been preventable through reasonable and available measures;
  • The loss must be visible and obvious to the FSA representative; if the loss is no longer visible, FSA may accept other loss evidence and determine whether that other evidence substantiates that an eligible loss due to natural disaster occurred; and 
  • FSA may require information from a qualified expert to determine extent of loss in the case of plant disease or insect infestation
