Dixie Highway Master Plan
In 2016, a Certified Arborist identified that many of the trees along Dixie Highway are not a good species to have in the long-term. It was recommended that the City take a proactive approach by implementing a planned and phased tree removal and replacement project over a 5 – 7 year time frame. In 2017, the City’s Tree Board was charged with the task of developing a master plan to address this issue. They partnered with MKSK and over a period of four months, worked diligently to develop recommendations for the corridor. A draft of the plan was presented to City Council at their April 2, 2018 Council meeting and final action was taken on the plan on May 7th. The goal of the Master Tree Plan is:
- Provide protection and to make sure the removal of all trees are conducted with proper considerations and adequate replacement program
- Provide and maintain healthy street trees
- Expand and improve upon the established Urban Forestry of the City

Edenderry Implementation Plan
Edenderry Drive is a public right-of-way in Fort Mitchell that is the primary entrance to the Waterford Homeowners Association neighborhood. It is currently lined with 61 white ash and Callery pear trees. These trees are declining and dying due to the effects of emerald ash borer and previous storm damage. Without proactive intervention, the neighborhood risks losing all of these trees in the next three to five years. The Waterford Homeowners Association (WHOA) has therefore decided to be proactive and systematically remove and replace the street trees over the next three years. This project is in coordination and cooperation with the City and the Fort Mitchell Tree Board. The goal of the Edenderry Drive Tree Removal and Replacement Implementation Plan:
- Follow the intent of Dixie Highway Trolley Line Master Tree Planting Plan to create a sae and sustainalepulic urban forest in the City of Fort Mitchell
- Adhere to the tree planting guidelines presented in the Plan so that replacement trees are properly installed and cared for according to current industry standards
- Select replacement tree species from a palette of more desirable species that will require less maintenance and provide multiple benefits, specifically a shady, overarching canopy for Edenderry Drive, storm water mitigation, wildlife habitat, an aesthetic beauty that will compliment the quality of the neighborhood.
- Create a public-private partnership so that the resources of both the WHOA and the City are used efficiently and effectively.
