BREWER — The Northeastern Loggers’ Association recently honored University of Maine associate professor Jeffrey Benjamin as the recipient of its 2012 Outstanding Service to the Forest Industry Award. Association President Dennis Allard presented the award to Benjamin at the annual Loggers’ Banquet in Brewer in a ceremony attended by more than 200 members of the northeast’s forest products industry.
During the awards presentation, Allard said, “If you aren’t already familiar with Jeff Benjamin and his work, maybe you should be. Perhaps you aren’t a regular reader of such publications as the Northern Journal of Applied Forestry and maybe you didn’t carve out some time to read his 2010 paper on Developing Woody Biomass Retention Guidelines in Maine. The fact is that very little research is being done on forest operations in the northeast anymore, but Jeff Benjamin is working to change that. A year ago, he made the long trek to Lyons Falls, New York to present some of his research at a forest industry symposium. This appearance paved the way for him to organize integrated forest operations research across our region — as Jeff recruited a team of professionals from Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and New York to study innovation in logging operations.”
