We like to do more than plant trees! A goal of Trees Knoxville is to build community. By tabling at events and having socials, we meet people and make new friends. If you are interested in having us table at your event, give a presentation, or just invite us to dinner…contact us…we’d love to hear from you. For upcoming events and meeting times, please see our events page.
Invasive Plant Removal September 14, 2019
16 volunteers, to include 6 of our Volunteer Foresters, came out on an unseasonably hot September morning to assist with an invasive plant removal project in collaboration with Mabry Hazen House. Volunteers removed 10 truckloads of the unwanted plant species to uncover dogwoods, rhododendrons, redbud, sassafrass...it was a productive morning. Did I mention it was HOT! Thank you to everyone who participated.
