Oak diseases are becoming an acute (killing fast) as opposed to chronic (low-level infection) problem in East TN.  To save these majestic trees we need to catch the disease first and then treat it with a three or sometimes a four-pronged approach.  It's more than just a chemical injection.  Better Nature can help determine if your trees are sick, how sick, and how to save them!

Westwood is the historic home and studio of Knoxville artist Adelia Armstrong Lutz

3425 Kingston Pike

Knoxville, TN 37919

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Westwood is a rare example of Queen Anne and Richardsonian Romanesque architectural styles. Rarer still, the home was designed with a beautiful and grand studio space in which Adelia Armstrong Lutz could pursue and display her art. Today, visitors can enjoy tours of the home led by trained volunteer docents. Experience Gilded Age architecture, a large collection of Adelia's art, works by other prominent female artists (including Cynthia Markert and Eugenia Dulin), a stunning collection of antique slag glass lamps from the Coates collection, and beautiful gardens.  Historic Westwood makes an extraordinary setting for private events.
