Highland Rim Unit

The 860-acre Highland Rim Forest, established in 1960, is located in Franklin County. This area is known as the “barrens” and is typified as being an Oak Forest of very low timber production and value. This station has numerous research and demonstration projects aimed at identifying optimum tree species and forest production systems to increase forest productivity on such sites.
