Forestry Professionals

West Virginia Consulting Assistance

With a long list of both State and Private Forestry Professionals, private and industrial landowners will be able to find the assistance and resources necessary for successful management practices of West Virginia woodlands.

State and Private Foresters assist in the following ways:

  • Help woodland owners in establishing better forest management practices that increase growth, yields and health while protecting soil, water and aesthetic values.
  • Help woodland owners reforest idle or eroded open lands by providing technical assistance on planting or natural regeneration.
  • Cooperate with other state and federal agencies in promoting and establishing multiple use management practices on privately owned forestland.
  • Provide wood-producing and wood-using industries with current technologies and useful management information while encouraging all interested parties to utilize sound forest management principles and practices.
