Description: To provide up-to-date information about the forest resources of the Nation, the Forest Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture, conducts a series of continuing forest surveys of the various states. This is a report on the latest forest resurvey of West Virginia, made by the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. It supersedes a report published in 1952, which contained forest-resource data based on an earlier survey made by the Northeastern Station. In this resurvey, a scientifically designed sampling system, partly based upon remeasured plots, was used. Data were collected and analyzed by the forest-survey staff of the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, except for the area of the Monongahela National Forest, in which the resurvey field work was done by National Forest personnel. Users of the data in this report are cautioned to read with care the definitions of the terms used, the description of the forest-survey methods, and the statements pertaining to the reliability of the estimates.
