The importance of trees, vegetation, and landscaping in urban areas cannot be understated. They help to cool cities, improve air quality and water quality, and help create desirable, pedestrian-friendly spaces. Our Urban Forestry Extension provides valuable, expert information on tree and urban landscape care and maintenance for private citizens, municipalities, and industry.
The Tennessee Urban Forestry Council (TUFC) and the UT Residential and Community Forestry Workgroup have joined forces to bring you free educational seminars to help you manage urban forests.
