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 Southern Region Extension Forestry group has put together a short summary of the Renewable Resource Extension Act and the great work that it funds.  West Virginia University gets an allocation of this to support our forest management, forest operations, and wildlife outreach and applied research programs. 

RREA funds forestry Extension programs at 71 land-grant universities nationwide to provide guidance to the country’s 11 million+ forest and range landowners on best management practices. These landowners are responsible for 441 million acres of forest and rangeland.   Management of this land strongly influences the economic, environmental, and social wellbeing of the nation. RREA finances thousands of educational events and learning opportunities that help private landowners keep their lands productive and healthy. The social and economic strength of working lands would be vastly diminished without this funding. Private landowners and their managed forests supply forest products companies with the wood they need. Forest products companies in the US account for nearly 4 percent total U.S. manufacturing GDP and employ close to a million men and women. 1 in 10 manufacturing jobs in 45 out of 50 states depend on the strength and resilience of this industry
