The King Woods contain numerous species of hardwood trees. There are beeches, oaks, and hickories, which lend a sense of stability and permanence to the academic mission of the college. King College is a member of the Consortium for Appalachian Watershed Studies (CAWS), and students and teachers from surrounding elementary and secondary schools, as well as colleges and universities, are encouraged and often do visit for education and research. The Tennessee Agricultural Extension Agent is encouraged to use King College campus for Master Gardener training.
King College has received a grant to identify, inventory, and create markers for all the tree species in the woods.
