Tree Removal and Planting

In an effort to maintain the aesthetics of our campus and to ensure a healthy tree population, Plant Operations will be overseeing a couple of noteworthy projects in the weeks ahead.  First, eighteen pine trees will be removed from an area contiguous to the tennis courts.  These trees are damaging the infrastructure in that area.  After these trees are removed a project will be undertaken to resurface the tennis courts.  Second, four spruce trees will be removed from the area between the parking lot and the Pickel Field House.  These trees are dying because of insufficient area for their root balls.
For each tree that is removed two native trees will be planted in locations that support the Volunteer State Community College Master Plan. Vol State  is intentional in planting diverse foliage and promoting the health of trees on campus.  If you are interested in becoming more involved in these efforts consider reaching out to Le-Ellen Dayhuff at
