NTF is a partner of Root Nashville

Root Nashville is an ambitious citywide campaign to add 500,000 trees by the year 2050. This equates to roughly planting 16,000 trees per year, which will take the work of many. NTF is committed to planting and giving away trees 1” diameter or larger to count towards these goals and will map every tree planted. You can help contribute towards these goals by planting a tree yourself or helping NTF reach and grow their impact each year.
