The area of the state bordering the Ohio in the west belongs to the Appalachian mountain system. The largest part is made up of the heavily broken Allegheny Plateau, which is set off from the Allegheny Mountains in the east (Spruce Knob 1,480 m above sea level) to the west to below 500 m above sea level. The eastern part of the country extends over the Great Appalachian Valley to the Blue Ridge. The climate is continental temperate, the annual rainfall amounts to more than 1 000 mm. Over 75% of the area is forested: coniferous forest in higher elevations, otherwise deciduous forest.
