NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Department of Agriculture Division of Forestry’s Forester of the Year has been selected. He is Paul Whaley.

The agency said in a news release the award recognizes a division forester who demonstrates outstanding effort and work accomplishments. Candidates are nominated by a group of peers within the agency.

Whaley has been an area forester in Wayne and Hardin counties in the Highland Rim District since 2003. He assists private landowners with management of their forestlands. He has also worked as an instructor for the annual FFA Forestry Camp for the last 14 years.

District Forester Jeffrey Piatt says Whaley was chosen for his work in the past year on a development team to streamline reporting accomplishments for division personnel, in addition to his regular duties.
