The classes will be taught by a political science professor from West Virginia University and will be for officials from eight or nine counties.

Westvaco Program

Pocahontas County land owners and organized youth groups received a total of 119,400 free pine seedlings during the past planting season under the West Virginia Pulp and Paper Company’s extensive pine regeneration program.

The object of the program is to get four seedlings planted for each tree cut in the counties where Westvaco buys pulpwood. There are no strings attached. The landowners can sell the mature trees to anyone. But the Westvaco forester emphasized that the company expects to be buying pulpwood in the county indefinitely.
