The West Virginia Hardwood Alliance Zone is a major hardwood-producing region that sustains several hardwood manufacturing, processing and other wood-product operations.
The hardwood industry has been a part of West Virginia since its infancy and has transcended third and fourth generations of loggers and wood workers.
West Virginia is the third most heavily forested state in the U.S., with 98% of that forested land available for timber production.
The West Virginia Hardwood Alliance consists of nine counties in the heart of West Virginia's hardwood zone. We provide a competitive advantage to the hardwood industry business in relation to relocation, expansion, and development.
Three advantages set us apart from other locations: abundant natural resources located near major transportation, a highly skilled labor force available at competitive wages, and an outstanding quality of life.
