Forestry and Wildlife Programs

Located in the heart of the Sequatchie Valley, Sequatchie County is rich in natural beauty and resources. Of the 176,240 acres in Sequatchie County, 130,600 acres are forested, that’s 77% of the county. This large area brings in between $1,600,000 (stumpage) to $4,500,000 (delivered) per year. The Mission of the University of Tennessee is to provide researched-based information to residents and landowners in Sequatchie County.
