WV’s Potential Multi-State Projects

The 2008 Farm Bill (PL 110-246) requires State Assessments to include “any multi-state areas that are a regional priority.” Furthermore, one of the desired outcomes of the S&PF Redesign approach is to identify the highest priority landscapes in states and regions and to develop focused strategies for addressing the forest resource challenges on those landscapes.

WV’s Potential Multi-State Projects

The NAASF-approved guidance documents for state assessments and strategies address multi-state priorities. State assessment guidance (p. 2) states, “To ensure that federal and state resources are being focused on important landscape areas with the greatest opportunity to address shared management priorities and achieve meaningful outcomes,…delineate any multi-state areas that are a regional priority.”

WV’s Potential Multi-State Projects

State strategy guidance (p.12) suggests that state strategies “should have a description of the priority issues and landscape areas brought forward from the state assessment. Priority landscape areas within the state as well as multi-state priority areas are required in the state assessment.”

reforestation of previously mined lands al ky md oh pa tn va and wv

The WVDOF is currently pursuing opportunities, and will continue to do so, in conjunction with the states listed above, to establish forests on previously mined lands that are in need of reforestation as a result of past mining practices. The WVDOF is communicating with the WVDEP, the federal OSM, USFS, the WV Coal Association, the WV Land and Mineral Owners Assoc., neighboring state forestry agencies, and others in this effort. Some of these areas have been replanted to trees and some have reforested naturally. However, thousands of acres of mined lands that were previously forested are now either barren or have been reseeded to grass.

Rampant, unplanned development in West Virginia, especially along the interstates between Huntington and Charleston, between Morgantown and Clarksburg, and near I-81 in the eastern panhandle, is causing a variety of natural resource problems. Among these are fragmentation and parcelization of forests, unplanned urbanization, water quality issues, and other problems. Most of these problems occur adjacent to and near interstates or other major highways, and likewise occur in adjacent states. The WVDOF would like to work with adjacent states on ways to minimize impacts to forests and other natural resources, as well as to resolve related issues of mutual concern.
