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.

releafing day update: Akzonobel joins sponsors for tree planting


Youth volunteers from the Mayor’s Youth Council and surrounding high schools will join representatives from AkzoNobel and NTF to lead the “Extreme Tree Makeover” project at Apollo Middle School and plant a total of 36 trees, remove storm water drainage pools, enhance the school’s garden, and shade critical areas of campus. The Apollo school project site will serve as the exclusive ReLeafing Day site for youth volunteers. Mayor’s Youth Council students are using the event as a way to improve the environment while also engaging students in community service activities.

The project was made possible through a generous community grant from global paints and coating company AkzoNobel, to provide a series of 10 student-led, civic improvement projects to beautify the city. It is the fourth community-wide project born from the partnership between AkzoNobel and the Nashville Mayor’s Youth Council. The AkzoNobel grant also provides academic scholarships to Nashville youth.
