THE APPALACHIAN HARDWOOD CENTER

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.

 

With improving timber markets, timber buyers are now searching for wood from the thousands of private landowners around the state.  This fall, the AHC will be sponsoring a number of workshops around the state that will help landowners better understand the opportunities and pitfalls of harvesting timber on their property.  The program will provide background information on forest harvesting and its impacts and benefits to wildlife, the landowner's economic bottom line, and the short and long term aesthetics of the land.

For more information on these workshops or to be notified when the schedule comes out, please contact Ben Spong
