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.
Making Waves at Waterfest
Did you know that trees play a vital role in improving water quality and providing stormwater control? Over 2000 visitors came out to Cumberland Park on Sunday to enjoy Waterfest 2018. Visitors to the NTF booth learned how to water a tree using a homemade, low-cost gallon jug with drip holes cut in the bottom. Many visitors also elected to put on some wacky-wear and take a pic in our fun photo booth. It was a great day to educate the public about the important connection between trees and water!
Free Trees at Nashville Tree Fest
NTF will distribute 800 container grown trees at farmers markets this fall
We will provide tree education and 800 free trees over a three-week period from Sept 23 to Oct 13 at Farmer's Markets across Davidson County. The public will be invited to pre-register for a free tree and then help us track the locations of our tree-babies as they are planted across the area. Registration for a free tree will open on-line in August!
