Knoxville-Knox County Tree Preservation & Planting Plan (Draft)

"This plan has been prepared to provide a framework for forest protection and to enhance the city and county landscape with tree planting programs. Specifically, the components are:



Protection of key resources, including ridges and riparian areas;

Planting programs for specific types of development, including parking lots and buffers between residential and other land uses;

Planting programs on public grounds, particularly schools and park and library sites;

Tree conservation and landscape improvements along rural roads, local streets, cross-county arterials, and interstates;

Standards and practices for planting trees;

Programs and ordinances that can be used to implement the plan.



In part, this plan is a companion to Knoxville’s Street Tree Master Plan, dating from 2002, in which the focus was the city’s streetscape. The emphasis of this plan is geographically greater, with overall conservation and planting programs that can be used by the city or the county."
