City Tree Board
History of the Tree Board
Knoxville's Tree Ordinance
Meeting Notes
In recent years, progressive communities throughout the United States have begun to recognize the very tangible benefits that trees provide in the urban environment. Healthy trees reduce air and noise pollution, provide energy-saving shade and cooling, furnish habitat for wildlife, improve water quality, enhance aesthetics and property values, and are an important contributor to community image, pride, and quality of life.

Knoxville has a huge advantage over most other US metropolitan areas for the cultivation of trees, as a result of its temperate climate, long growing season, and varied topography – all which are positive attributes for the rapid growth of diverse species of trees. The Knoxville Tree Board is working to raise awareness of the significant resource that Knoxville has in its trees, in order to help to maintain the health and long-term sustainability of Knoxville’s urban tree canopy.
