Knoxville invests $40K to add trees to city

Starting in November, city employees will begin planting 500 canopy and large shade trees in areas that need more tree cover.

A state Department of Agriculture grant for $20,000 will be matched by an additional $20,000 in local funds.

Trees will be planted on North Broadway, Clinton Highway, Hall of Fame Drive, Island Home Avenue, Middlebrook Pike, Park Ridge, Sherrill Boulevard, the Cal Johnson Recreation Center and the safety building.

Planting should be complete by March. This is the second year the city has boosted treecover -- in 2014 about 600 trees were planted throughout the city.
