KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Two mature Japanese maple trees located at the site of the new Knox County Regional Forensic Center will go up for auction in an effort to preserve the trees and generate revenue.

The trees have to be moved in order for some of the work on the building to progress.

“I hope someone will see the value that these trees could bring to an East Tennessee landscape,” said Mayor Tim Burchett. “Rather than cut them down, I thought we should put them up for auction so someone can benefit from having them on their property and the taxpayers can benefit from the additional revenue.”

Any proceeds from the sale will go to the county's General Fund.
