The mission of the Tennessee Urban Forestry Council (TUFC), as an advisory board, is to promote healthy and sustainable urban and community forests in Tennessee through leadership, advocacy, education and planning.

The Tennessee Division of Forestry extinguishes the more than 2,500 fires that burn each year and helps control the diseases and insects that plague our forests. Since trees provide energy savings and storm water reduction and add scenic beauty, the division is also working to market the benefits of adding trees to urban areas.
