Dogwood Arts is rallying East Tennessee to take part in the annual community-wide dogwood tree-planting day on Saturday, December 6, 2014. As part of the Bazillion Blooms program, Dogwood Arts aims to restore the former vitality and beauty of the dogwood tree population in East Tennessee communities.
Over the years, local dogwood tree populations have dwindled due to age, disease, construction, and neglect. The Bazillion Blooms program will begin selling disease-resistant Appalachian Snow and Cherokee Brave dogwood trees for $25 each beginning November 14. Photo submitted.
Since the initiation of Bazillion Blooms in 2009, Knoxville area residents and supporting volunteers have planted more than 6,550 trees.
Dogwood Arts is a 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to promote and celebrate our region’s arts, culture, and natural beauty.
