The Appalachian Hardwood Center (AHC) at West Virginia University, is a jointly supported center of the WVU Extension Service and the WVU Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Design.

The center was established in 1987 by the West Virginia Legislature to provide technical and research support for the state's growing wood products industry. The AHC is a center of excellence for outreach; extension and technology transfer; professional development; and applied research. The AHC serves sustainable natural resource-based businesses and communities as well as private forest landowners and natural resource professionals in the Appalachian forest region.


Through a generous gift by Dick Bowlby and the Bowlby family and a matching gift from the WV Research Trust Fund, we have over $1 million in place to initiate the Hardwood Research Trust, a program designed to seek and fund innovative ideas related to the science of Appalachian hardwood management, processing, and product development that have the potential to increase the growth of the region's forest-based economy.

We are currently ready to solicit proposals to be funded by the HRT. If you have any ideas that fit the Mission of the HRT, and are willing to partner with a WVU researcher to further their development, please take this opportunity to apply for this funding.

Deadline has been extended to September 10, 2013 @ 5pm.
