Metro Historic and Specimen Tree Registry
Introducing a voluntary way to protect trees in davidson county...
Metro Tree Advisory Committee of the Beautification and Environmnet Commission has launched a program to allow property owners a way to protect trees in the future. You may apply for designation; and, if approved by Metro, apply for a deed restriction. Trees do not have to be Big Old Tree Contest winners to qualify. When you apply for a deed restriction of approved trees, it will assure the following:
- Registered trees can be protected from removal even after the property changes ownership.
- If trees are found to be dead or the lot cannot be redeveloped without tree removal, exceptions can be made.
- Future property owners would have to apply to have the deed restrictions removed should they desire.
Please take a moment to consider the positive impact this preservation step can have in our rapidly-growing city. More information can be found at Nashville.gov by clicking here.
