Economic Impacts of Tennessee Agriculture and Forestry

Agriculture and forestry play a significant role in the health of our citizens, the beauty of our landscape, and the quality of our lives. Furthermore, in hundreds of rural communities across Tennessee, those industries are the primary drivers of the local economy. 

Every year, the University of Tennessee releases an economic impact study demonstrating the importance of agriculture and forestry to our state.

You can also determine how the industries affect individual counties using county-level economic impact data provided by UT.
