Dogwood Patent

Dr. Mark Windham of University of Tennessee AgResearch discusses research into protecting dogwood trees.

Forestry Audit

Tennessee’s forests grow some of the best timber in the country. That’s according to a recent audit by national forestry inspectors. UT Extension researchers say when landowners properly manage their forests, there’s a real environmental and economic benefit.

Nursery Industry

Tennessee is one of the top producers of ornamental plants in the nation. The nursery industry here is concentrated in a very specific part of our state, known for a mild climate and growing beautiful trees and shrubs.

Tree Diseases

Tennessee is home to more species of trees than any other state. But pests and disease threaten several varieties. UT’s Institute of Agriculture is teaming with the state Division of Forestry to figure out what’s happening to these trees.

Bazillion Blooms

Here in the dead of winter, it’s never too early to start thinking about spring and one of it’s prettiest symbols–the dogwood tree. But many of Tennessee’s dogwoods are dying because of disease and old age.

Clarksville Mansion

Its a stunning mansion that really comes alive this time of year with Christmas spirit. Family and community education club members in one Tennessee town work hard to decorate nearly two dozen trees there.

Shackelford Orchard

We must work now to preserve forest land in Tennessee for future generations. Thats the take of researchers with UTs Institute of Agriculture- who are concerned suburban sprawl or poor forest management could take away many acres of trees.

Mine Site Restoration

We get 50 percent of our electricity from coal, but getting to coal underground sometimes means we have to cut down trees. Recent advances in mine reclamation efforts are now making it possible to restore these forests

Wood for Biomass

America must find alternative sources for fuel and energy in the future. Traditionally we think of corn ethanol and other crops that can be converted – but Tennessee’s vast forests might also someday be used for biomass.

Teachers & Forestry

Most Tennessee schools are either back in session, or just about to ring the school bell for the first time this year. But for many teachers, summer was hardly a vacation from their own brand of learning.
