This project will help the University of Tennessee to expand its facilities to study and develop new ways to combat the spread of an invasive insect species that destroys hemlock trees. Hemlocks are vital to the life cycle of the forests and wildlife in Tennessee, including the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Cherokee National Forest. This project was recommended by the Interim University of Tennessee President.
