All seedlings must be bought through the Department of Agriculture, Division of Forestry. Tree planting season in Tennessee is December through March.
Grant proposals should include the applicant organization’s name, tax ID number, address, phone, and name of a contact person authorized to enter into contractual agreement on behalf of the organization. The proposal should also include the name of the stream, county or counties involved, and the project area and description.
