BDN Reports on Rice’s Role with Timber Company

The Bangor Daily News reported on wood science professor Robert Rice’s efforts to assist Maine Heritage Timber Co. with its production of specialty lumber from timber submerged since the early 1800s in Millinocket’s Quakish Lake.

In “UMaine professor helps business take wood from bottom of lake to the showroom,” Rice highlights UMaine’s mission to serve the state and said that building relationships with businesses is also valuable to students. Maine Heritage Timber Co. uses the salvaged wood to produce high-end furniture and flooring.
