In recognition of his leadership, integrity, intellect, and long-term commitment to sustainable forest management. We honor his efforts to champion both Maine’s working forests and the community of forestry professionals.

At the Maine Forest Products Council’s 61st annual meeting Sept. 20, Peter Triandafillou, who recently retired as vice president of woodlands at Huber Resources, received MFPC’s most prestigious award, the Albert D. Nutting Award.

The award has been presented annually since 1990 to a remarkable group of individuals (see below), each of them truly unique, but with a common commitment to Maine and it’s forest industry. The Nutting award was created in 1990 to honor Al Nutting, the former director of the School of Forestry at the University of Maine, Maine Commissioner of Forestry and one of the founders of the Maine Forest Products Council. 

The winner must “have demonstrated recognized qualities of leadership and integrity, as well as a commitment to the values both public and private, generated from the working forest. His or her experience will reflect concern for the sound environmental use as well as the economic value of the forest to industry and the community at large.”

“It’s a great honor for me tonight,” said Jim Robbins Sr.,  “to be able to present the Albert Nutting award to Peter Triandafillou.”
