Strategic Planning Listening Sessions

"The most reliable way to predict the future is to create it" Abraham Lincoln

Change is coming to Southern West Virginia. We can let it happen….or we can chart its course!

West Virginia State University Land-Grant Programs need your help to understand where to use our resources to best serve our communities.

We are looking towards the future and need community leaders, innovators, policymakers, parents, teachers, and youth such as yourself to help us in this process. What emerging issues, forces, trends will impact the success of WV? What strategies and actions are we taking, and what should we be doing moving forward? In this ever-changing climate, the only way we can move forward is together. Join us in the process of figuring out what our future looks like by registering to attend one of our information gathering sessions.

Free Tree Planting in Your Community

West Virginia State University and Diversified Energy are partnering to help re-green communities in the state of West Virginia, one resident at a time. Much of our cities’ green space is in our own backyards, and WVSU Extension Service is here to assist you with everything from assessing your planting site to picking the right tree and planting it!

Extension Educators will come to your home, talk to you about your yard, what you would like to accomplish with your tree, purchase the tree and help you plant it! We are offering shade trees, flowering trees, fruit and nut trees ­— any tree to suit your needs!


March 1: Deadline for applications

March 15–31: Extension educators visit individual properties and conduct site assessments to select the right tree

May 1–31: Plantings
