The University of Tennessee’s School of Natural Resources is proud to host an International Oak Symposium in 2024 to provide a platform to exchange information and build collaborations around the best available science and technology on oak ecology and management for a global audience. Field trip(s) will be offered that showcase multi-disciplinary research of the USDA Forest Service and other partners.

The overall goal of this symposium is to cultivate and promote synergy among natural resource managers and researchers working towards practical applications to sustain or restore oak ecosystems around the world. The symposium will address the most current issues and complexities related to science-based management of oak species and forests at global, regional, and local scales. The four-day program seeks to engage a diverse audience of managers and scientists in a forum that fosters innovation in silviculture and management for sustainability of oak forests.

Our specific objectives are to provide platforms, products, and opportunities for:

  • technology transfer and dialogue between researchers and managers
  • scientific exchanges among researchers
  • fostering collaborations between managers and researchers
  • production of peer-reviewed research papers
  • Contribute towards professional development of students and early-career scientists
