    Description

    This report chronicles the status of forest health in West Virginia as of 1993. Primary data sources are the Forest Inventory and Analysis reports, West Virginia state forest pest reports, National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration weather records and numerous other publications. We attempted to describe primary stressing agents affecting the forest, including drought, defoliation, fire and overstocking and to relate the occurrence of stress to the performance of the forest (growth, mortality, etc.). Furthermore, we divided the state into zones representing the major cover types (mesophytic hardwoods, Appalachian oaks, northern hardwoods and spruce). Indexes to the health status of these types, such as growth and mortality, were examined, and comparisons were made between high and low stress zones, using the expected rates from published reports.
