    Description

    West Virginia is the Nation's third most forested State in terms of percent forest cover with at least 80 percent of its land forested. Despite this wealth of timber, in the late 19th and early 20th century the State was almost completely cut over with 30 billion board feet being harvested between 1870 and 1920. Currently, there are numerous second growth stands that are approaching 100 years in age. This maturing timber and strong hardwood stump-age prices have given good reason for the forest industry to procure timber and private woodland owners to be enthusiastic about the potential uses of West Virginia's forests.
