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.

 

The Northeast Woody/Warm-season Biomass Consortium will be hosting a field tour demonstrating the establishment and growth of short rotation bioenergy crops on a reclaimed surface mined site in central West Virginia.

NEWBio researchers from West Virginia University will be leading the tour which will take place on July 31st 2014. Participants will be provided an update on NEWBio activities and will have the opportunity to visit a study site and view the development of bioenergy crops. Those attending the tour will see trial sites planted with Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum), Miscanthus (Miscanthus x giganteus), and giant cane (Arundo donax L) all three of which are potential bioenergy crops.

In order to participate in the tour, you must register by July 28th 2014.
