Forestry and Wildlife Research

Ames is the largest and has the most diverse landscape of The University of Tennessee’s Research and Education Centers. The 18,400-acre Center spans landforms ranging from the rich riparian zones associated with the North Fork of the Wolf River to the dry hilltops of farmlands abandoned in the early 20th century.

It contains large acreages of cropland and pasture, along with 13,500 acres of forests made up of both mature hardwoods and pine plantations. The vast array of habitats and topographical scale provides an impressive resource where forest and wildlife research and education can be accommodated for almost any regional or more basic natural resource or ecological question that might arise, including those requiring long term commitments. Ames is unique in Tennessee; and, with its contributions to a wide range of science and education, nationally recognized across many disciplines.
