Over half of Tennessee’s land is forest, creating significant acreage that requires strategic care and management. These forests provide vital resources for industry, wildlife habitat, outdoor recreation, and air and water quality. They also need protection from invasive species, urban sprawl, and improper logging practices.
UT Extension works to bring you best practices to help make Tennessee’s forests healthy and sustainable and to ensure that these valuable resources are thriving for generations to come. Explore this page for information on successfully managing your forest resources.
