Like parents influence their children, landowners influence how well their woodlands grow. Unlike parents, private landowners can call in West Virginia service foresters to evaluate their woods, identify what the landowners want from their forests and come up with a management plan to achieve it.
“All non-industrial private woodland owners in West Virginia can use our services,” said Assistant State Forester Charles Copeland, Jr., WVDOF Landowner Assistance program.
The West Virginia Division of Forestry (WVDOF) Landowner’s Assistance program services include:
Forest Management Plan preparation
Timber sale assistance
