WV Public Lands - National Forest Boundaries
This data was developed by the United States Forest Service, and is frequently updated as boundaries are corrected or adjusted. There are several datasets available, each clipped to different extents or containing unique information. Each is described below: National Forest Proclamation Boundaries, 2004. This data has been clipped to the West Virginia boundary and contains the full extents of lands within the Monongahela, George Washington and the Jefferson National Forests. Since these are proclamation boundaries, the forest service does not own all land within the boundary, but may operate within the area. National Forest Surface Ownership Boundaries, 2005. These files contain polygons of the lands within the proclamation boundaries of each forest that the USFS actually owns and/or manages. National Forests of the Surrounding Region, 2004. These files are the complete boundaries of the National Forests that abut or are proximal to West Virginia.
