The City of Clarksville Building & Facilities Maintenance Department (Forestry Division) will continue to replace trees throughout the downtown area every weekend in February, beginning Feb 12 from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Trees identified for replacement as part of a Tennessee Agricultural Enhancement Program (TAEP) grant will take place on the following dates and locations:
- February 12: Trees in front of the Clarksville-Montgomery County E911 Building at South 1st Street
- February 13: Trees at the corner of Main Street and North Spring Street by the City Wellness Center
- February 19: Trees at Hiter and Commerce St. at Planters Bank
- February 20: Trees at Spring Alley
- February 26-27: Trees along Strawberry Alley
Due to the overall size of the trees being replaced, streets where tree work is being conducted, will be closed to ordinary car and truck traffic to allow crews to remove the trees safely. Pedestrian traffic will remain open in these areas for building and store access where applicable.
This operation continues after 23 trees were successfully removed from around the Cumberland Plaza Garage and will receive replacements starting in March. This operation is part of a larger project made possible through a TAEP grant, a 50/50 matching grant from the State Department of Agriculture.
A total of 52 large trees will be replaced throughout the downtown area no later than April 30, when the TAEP grant is finalized.
