Bridgestone has donated a 6,000-acre tract in White County, Tn., to the The Nature Conservancy.
The property is near Sparta about 80 miles east of Nashville.
The tract will be called the Bridgestone Nature Reserve at Chestnut Mountain.
It represents the largest donation received by The Nature Conservancy in Tennessee.
The donation will offset some of the carbon footprint of Bridgestone locating a 30-story office tower in Nashville as well as for other businesses.
Bridgestone earlier fave an adjacent 10,000 acres to the state in sections in 1996 and 2000.
It is known as the Bridgestone-Firestone Centennial Wilderness Wildlife Management Area.
