Discovery Tree Walk with Joe Cope
Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum
August 29, 2019
Trees Knoxville was honored to have Joe Cope a Tree Service Technician with the City of Knoxville, as well as a Public Horticulturist Certified Arborist lead us through a less traveled area of the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum pointing out trees that we didn’t know were there! He explained how the trees growing in rows were remnants of the Howell Nursery days…probably meant to be sold but weren’t and how trees grow in a forest vs in an open space. He showed us some interesting trees and taught us a little bit about each species. Thank you, Joe for a great walk! We finished up the evening with conversation and laughter at Boyd’s Jig and Reel.
Summer Solstice Eve Tree Walk with Patrick Hollis
Mabry Hazen House
June 20, 2019
Trees Knoxville and Mabry Hazen House combined efforts for a very nice evening under the trees. From the historic Magnolias where Evelyn Hazen would read and write, to the recently discovered Dogwood Grove, and to the gigantic Osage Orange that has weathered its fair share of storms, Executive Director and Historian, Patrick Hollis, presented some wonderful tales of Mabry Hazen House and her trees. With 33 different species of trees, Mabry Hazen is an identified Level 1 Arboretum. The event was followed by a social at Last Days of Autumn Brewery.
