A Tree donated by the Sevier County Electric System will be planted to honor students and faculty that have ever worked at or attended the Sevierville Middle School, which will become the Sevierville Intermediate School in August 2023.
The highlight of the event will be reading the names of individuals who received a memorial or honorary tree since Arbor Day 2022. This reading is a longstanding tradition of Sevierville's annual event. Since the tree planting program began in 1985, over five-hundred trees have been planted and funded through private donations honoring an individual or memorializing someone that has passed on.
The City of Sevierville Trees Parks and Recreation Advisory Board (which also acts as the Tree Board) continues to make efforts to improve urban tree care and benefits to the citizens of Sevierville. For additional information on the board and the tree program, please visit
