Media note UMaine role in Northern Forest Center coalition

The Bangor Daily News and Vermont Business Magazine noted that the University of Maine is part of a coalition led by the Northern Forest Center that has been awarded $1 million from the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Regional Innovation Engines program. “This new investment allows taking our key research innovations in precision forestry and ecosystem services valuation to full commercialization, which opens new potential possibilities for this ecologically and economically important resource for this region. We are excited to join both old and new partners to help make this a reality,” said Aaron Weiskittel, director of UMaine’s Center for Research on Sustainable Forests.
