UGA researchers win writing award from national forestry association

Three UGA researchers won a national writing award for their analysis of how the timber harvesting industry in two states changed over the past
25 years.

Dale Greene and Shawn Baker, both from the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, accepted the 2014 National Technical Writing Award from the Forest Resources Association. Samantha Marchman, lead author of the paper and a graduate student in Warnell when the research was conducted, is now a resource forester for Plum Creek in Crossett, Arkansas.

The trio conducted their award-winning project in 2012, publishing an analysis of a quarter century of timber harvesting activity in Georgia and more recently in South Carolina.
