Tennessee is one of America’s greenest states.
It is still more than 50-percent forested. In fact, much of the majestic beauty that defines Tennessee comes from its trees.
Our trees provide habitats for animals, nesting for birds and shading for our homes. They are also under attack.
Tennessee’s beautiful trees are appetizing to many foreign pests that are making new homes in our state.
