DescriptionForests protect watersheds, provide opportunities for recreation and settings for aesthetic enjoyment, serve as habitat for wildlife, and produce wood and other forest products. They have played a major role in the history and culture of West Virginia. Highlighted in this brochure are significant trends in West Virginia's forests over the last half century. Data are summarized from reports published by the USDA Forest Service, which periodically inventories the forests of all 50 states. In cooperation with the West Virginia Division of Forestry, the Northeastern Research Station completed the fifth statewide inventory of West Virginia's forest resource in 2000.
