Urban Forest Master Plan Update Open House Sept. 13, 2023

Posted: 09/01/2023
Trees Knoxville will host an open house on Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2023 from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Public Works Service Center, at 3131 Morris Avenue. The open house will provide an update on the planning process for the Urban Forest Master Plan. 

Trees Knoxville and City staff have been working with consultant Urban Canopy Works LLC for the past several months to learn about the public’s thoughts, opinions and goals for the city’s urban canopy – that’s the tree cover in public places and on private property. There have been multiple public, neighborhood and steering committee meetings.  

At the Sept. 13 meeting, Trees Knoxville and City of Knoxville Urban Forester Kasey Krouse will give a presentation on the recommendations from Urban Canopy Works LLC based on the public input. 

A successful Urban Forest Master Plan will help Knoxville preserve, grow, and care for trees, which play a significant role in public health and environmental health.
