Like many states in the Central Appalachian region West Virginia has experienced a continual expansion in primary hardwood processing capacity during the 1990s. In the early part of the decade, hardwood sawmill capacity increased by nearly 40 percent to more than 700 million board feet per year. In the mid and late 1990s, several other primary processing facilities were built in or near West Virginia, including two oriented-strandboard mills, two parallel strand and laminated veneer product mills, and two rotary-cut hardwood plywood mills.
