The Nashville Tree Foundation works to preserve and enhance Nashville’s urban forests by planting trees in urban areas, identifying the oldest and largest trees in Davidson County, and educating the public about the value of trees.

Alert: Ash Trees are Under Attack

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is attacking all species of North American ash trees and unless treated, it will kill them all before the year 2026. No ash tree is immune to the devastating effects of this insect which has been in Davidson County since 2014. Find out more about EAB in Nashville and how to protect your ash trees here
