Industry Assistance

The wood industry of West Virginia generates $3.2 billion annually to the state's economy. This industry also employs more than 30,000 jobs in the Mountain State. Each of the state's 55 counties has some segment of the wood industry as an employer. The forest products sector is the largest employer in many of these counties.
The West Virginia Division of Forestry is responsible for providing technology transfer and expertise to start-up companies as well as existing businesses of wood manufacturing. This includes conducting resource analysis studies to ensure there is enough wood resources in an area before a company decides to expand. This helps reduce the chance of overproduction, which may lead to a company to go out of business. Marketing assistance is provided to help companies locate new markets for their products as well.
Wood products manufacturing businesses includes loggers, sawmills, dry kilns, rustic rail fence producers, veneer plants, furniture parts producers, kitchen cabinets and other wooden furniture.
