Cochran Elementary School

The plant operator at Cochran Elementary contacted TreesLouisville to ask if we could help get some trees planted on their campus. Even though the school makes some pretty good spending money by utilizing the grounds for parking during the St. James Art Fair, the administration still wanted to pack in as many trees as possible around the playground areas that the students use.


Tucked in between the beautiful Victorian houses in Old Louisville and the main campus of UofL, Cochran sits in one of Louisville’s “hot spots” indicated by the 2015 Urban Heat Management Study. The addition of Cochran’s new trees will help mitigate the heat island effect in the area.
