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.


West Virginia University’s Appalachian Hardwood Center will offer a six-day Certified Logger Training Program beginning Monday, Oct. 24, and running weekdays through Monday, Oct. 31.

“The logging workforce is undergoing a transformation and requires new well-trained people to provide raw materials to help traditional forest products industries and help new green energy facilities to grow and prosper,” said Ben Spong, a WVU Extension Specialist with the AHC and one of the event’s organizers.

This Certified Logger Training Program provides an excellent introduction, including basic logging skills training and the required training for certification by the state.

“With this training and certification, you will be well positioned to start a career as a logging professional,” Spong said, recommending the training for anyone who is “underemployed, a private forest landowner, a student and most anyone else interested in the field of logging.”
