The majority of Slahor’s research and industrial extension work has been in the wood preservation/bio deterioration area. However in the 25+ years at WVU he has been involved in various aspects of projects from the stump (time motion studies on logging, safety studies on logging) through primary and secondary manufacture of wood products. Areas of expertise include: Wood Preservation/Protection, Wood Bio Deterioration, and Wood Packaging Material Phytosanitation Issues.
