TDOT Urban Forest

Hi Kasey,

Congrats on your work revitalizing the TDOT urban forest in the SmartFix 40 corridor.

Just saw this article <http://www.cityofknoxville.org/Press_Releases/Content/2015/0331.asp​> and posted this to the neighborhood Facebook group:

More good things resulting from our Urban Forestry Department, this time for the TDOT SmartFix40 "Urban Forest." Article: "Over time, invasive trees and shrubs came in, so the county work crews went in and removed the invasive species," Krouse said. "It’s a great partnership with Knox County. We’re thrilled to be able to make such a difference so quickly, at no cost to taxpayers."

I really appreciate your ability to maintain the initial investment in the landscaping. It looks great.


Thanks,

Tanner
