Abstract

The University of Tennessee’s Tree Improvement Program is in its 49th year of conducting research
and technology transfer activities with a special emphasis on hardwood species, particularly
oak (Quercus spp.). Programs have included seed orchard construction and development, nursery
studies, silviculture tests with genetic backgrounds, agroforestry, afforestation studies, and
precision forestry. Cooperative research is being conducted in molecular genetics with scientists
seeking pedigreed materials and pedigreed field studies. Afforestation and reforestation activities
with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency are being conducted to restore bottomland losses
to agricultural sites. The program’s work with seed orchard development and nursery practices
is geared to provide locally adapted high quality seedlings to achieve land management goals.
The program currently has plantings from New York state to Nebraska in various stages of
development.
