To improve the effectiveness of Knoxville’s urban forest management program and the urban forest, the City performed a comprehensive operational review of its current urban forestry program and a tree inventory. An independent contractor was hired to assess the status of the City’s urban forest, estimate the costs and benefits of the urban forest to the community, analyze the current urban forest management system employed by the City, and ultimately make recommendations to the City about its urban forestry program. Davey Resource Group performed the urban forestry program assessment for the City of Knoxville and developed the City's Tree Plan.
