Appalachian Region

Properties under management in the Appalachian Region total about 549,005 acres, in 6 different states, including West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Ohio. Timber types range from natural Appalachian Hardwoods to northern hardwood and loblolly pine plantations. The general management focus is toward natural regeneration systems for both hardwood and softwood timber types. A variety of intermediate treatments are utilized to encourage regeneration response, diversify species mix, and improve the growth and vigor of residual stems. Harvesting activities can occur year round though the majority of the activity occurs in the summer months.
