Oregon State University College of Forestry Prof. Doug Maguire has received a research award from the Oregon Society of American Foresters (OSAF).
Maguire, who has taught at OSU since 1996, now has won the award three times. The award recognizes outstanding achievement in any branch of science leading to advancement in either the science or practice of forestry in Oregon.
Maguire, who received the award at the OSAF annual meeting April 28 in Coos Baty, also has taught at the University of Maine and the University of Washington.
Since 1988 he has been the author or co-author of 94 articles in peer-reviewed journals. He has served as the major professor for 37 graduate students and as a graduate committee member for an additional 88 students.
Maguire’s main research focus is in silviculture, growth and yield and Douglas fir productivity and plantation management. Since 2007 he has been the director of the Center for Intensive Planted-forest Silviculture at Oregon State.
“Dr. Maguire is an effective teacher and teaches courses on forest models and silviculture influences,” said Stephen Fitzgerald, director of the College of Forestry research forests at OSU. “He is a highly sought speaker and is highly respected by colleagues across the Pacific Northwest, the United States and abroad.”
