BAZILLION BLOOMS

Dogwood Arts is on a mission to Keep Knoxville Blooming and make it easy
for you to make a difference––one tree at a time. Beautify your own landscape, honor someone special, or donate a tree to the Dogwood Trails and Keep Knoxville Blooming for years to come!
Our trees come from a grower in Middle Tennessee, are disease-resistant, spring-blooming, and available in pink and white.

  • Pick-Up & Plant Yourself: (1-4 trees are $25/each or order 5+ for $20/each) Trees ordered through November 16, 2023 will be available for pickup from the Dogwood Arts office on Friday, December 8th from 10AM-5M & Saturday, December 9th from 9AM-12PM.

  • Gift Trees: $35/each & includes commemorative card mailed to the recipient of your choosing

Planting trees is a simple and effective way to clean our air, reduce stress, and conserve the environment. Over 14,500 dogwood trees have been added to our community in just 14 years through the Bazillion Blooms program. Knoxville’s iconic Dogwood Trails were created in 1955 to help beautify our neighborhoods. As the landscape ages, it is increasingly important to revitalize tree plantings along these trails and throughout our region to ensure their beauty continues into the future.

14.5K TREES PLANTED

A BAZILLION BLOOMS

HOW IT WORKS:  

OPTION 1: 
PICK-UP & PLANT YOURSELF
(1-4 trees) $25/each (5+ trees) $20/each

Purchase bare-root trees (2.5-4ft tall) and plant them yourself! Plan ahead for spring blooms: Fall/winter is the best time to plant trees: the combination of warm soil, fall rains, and cool temperatures stimulate root growth to help your tree get established for next spring.

OPTION 2: 
BUY IN MEMORY OR CELEBRATION
$35/each (includes card)

No matter what time of the year, you can celebrate a special event, honor an individual, or memorialize a loved one by donating a tree to the Historic Dogwood Trails. Your gift will Keep Knoxville Blooming and include a commemorative card (with your personal message) that will be mailed to the recipient of your choosing.

OPTION 3: 
DONATE TREES TO THE HISTORIC DOGWOOD TRAILS
$25/each 

Support the Dogwood Arts Trails & Gardens Program by donating trees to be planted along our historic Dogwood Trails, which have been a symbol of civic pride and community celebration since 1955.

WHY PLANT DOGWOODS?

  • To keep our historic Dogwood Trails blooming for years to come! The first Dogwood Trail was planted in 1955. With a dogwood trees’ average life span of 25 years in an urban setting and up to 50 in a native setting, it is important to plant for the future.

  • Dogwood trees offer 4 seasons of interest: spring bloom, summer shade, crimson fall color and winter berries for wildlife. The berries provide food for American Cardinals along with over 35 species of birds.

  • Spring flowers provide nectar to pollinators including bees and spring azure butterflies

  • Planting trees increases property values by providing beauty, decreasing utility costs by providing shade and improving air quality
