LEWIS STATE FOREST
LEWIS STATE FOREST
This area was purchased from the Chancery Court of Lewis County for delinquent taxes in 1933 and became a State Forest in 1936. It is on the Western Highland Rim in central-southwestern Tennessee, in Lewis County. There are no known cultural sites on the forest. There is a demonstration forest road, exemplifying the use of BMPs and appropriate engineering specifications. Other areas of the forest have served for past research studies. A small wetland occurs in the southwestern corner of the forest. Most of the land (97%) is in forest cover and the remainder is open land. This Forest is somewhat unique in the Tennessee State Forest system in that about 15% of the forested area is in the southern yellow pine type. Primary recreational use of the Forest is for hunting. All timber harvests include objectives for improving habitat for wildlife.


Location
Lewis State Forest is located near Hohenwald, Lawrenceburg and Columbia
