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.

 

Clinton Gabbert & Joseph McNeel have recently released a white paper that discusses import tarriff impacts on the US hardwood export market.

"Tariffs placed on Chinese goods imported to the US would likely lead to retaliatory imposition of tariffs on US goods exported to China. Such tariffs would have catastrophic effects on the US hardwood lumber industry. The US exported $1.2 billion of sustainably sourced hardwood lumber to China in 2016 and is poised to exceed that in 2017. While the US manufactures significant amounts of both industrial and appearance grade hardwood lumber, the growing Chinese demand for higher-value appearance grade hardwood, which is used to produce household furniture and cabinetry, is particularly important to foster."
