Description: In 1948 the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station of the U.S. Forest Service, Department of Agriculture, established a field unit to conduct research in forest and watershed management in the Northern Appalachian Mountain region. This is a progress report on the activities and accomplishments of this research unit during its first 13 years of existence. Known initially as the Mountain State Research Center, later as the Elkins Research Center, and since 1962 as the Timber and Watershed Laboratory, this research unit has its administrative headquarters in the U.S. Forest Service Building at Elkins, West Virginia. However, most of the research facilities, including the Fernow Experimental Forest, are located near the town of Parsons, 22 miles to the northeast. A new laboratory is now being constructed at Parsons as field headquarters for this research unit.
