ReLeafing Day is the Nashville Tree Foundation's fall planting, held every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.  This year on Saturday, November 17, 2018 ReLeafing Day will once again be planting in the neighborhoods of southeast Nashville. Check back for more details this summer!

Volunteers across the county will come to plant trees on public lands and in private yards. In partnership with Nashville Electric Service, the Tree Foundation has planted hundreds of trees that coexist with power lines since ReLeafing Day began in 2002. Since 2009, NTF has partnered with Cumberland River Compact to share volunteers for plantings.

ReLeafing Day evolved out of Nashville Tree Foundation’s highly successful, award-winning ReLeaf Nashville project that planted 6,757 shade trees from 1998 to 2001 to replace some of the 20,000 felled by tornadoes April 16, 1998.

Volunteer registrations will open in summer 2018.
