UMaine mentioned in BDN editorial on mass timber

The University of Maine was mentioned in the Bangor Daily News editorial, “Maine should help give mass timber mass appeal.” The editorial argues the state could benefit greatly from turning the lumber from Maine woods into a variety of new products. Using any of the state’s vacant industrial spaces to manufacture mass timber products could dramatically lower costs in Maine, the editorial states. “The University of Maine is already doing much of that work, using federal grant money to pay for half of its $1 million Mass Timber Commercialization Center, which will promote bringing new types of wood product manufacturing to the state,” the editorial reads.
