In cooperation with partners, the Wood Education and Resource Center in Princeton, WV, offers technical expertise and information to businesses, States, and others, on topics such as efficient wood processing, utilizing pest-damaged timber, green building, and wood energy. The center owns a 43,000-square-foot rough mill and 12,000-square-foot wood shop. These facilities historically have been leased to a wood products manufacturing business, to provide local jobs and opportunities to improve worker skills. Legislation directed the Forest Service to assume leadership of this former Robert C. Byrd Hardwood Technology Center in 1999.
