UTIA and TNC Partner on Working Woodlands (video) University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture Share Print E-Mail Loading video... Caption The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture and The Nature Conservancy have signed a historic agreement to manage the university's forested research properties under the highest standards for forest management while also selling carbon credits to benefit society and fight climate change. UTIA is the first academic institution to enroll in TNC's Working Woodlands Program, which was established in 2009 to engage landowners in securing and sustainably managing their forestlands to benefit the environment and local livelihoods. This also represents the first time a university forest will have a registered carbon offset project. Credit Video produced by D. Edlund, courtesy UTIA.
