Nashville Tree Foundation and Nashville Electric Service are teaming up to plant FREE TREES in Northeast Nashville.
Homes with a primary power line running across the front yard can register to receive one of these trees to be planted by NTF volunteers on ReLeafing Day. Limited quantities available - trees are given on a first come basis to qualified residents. Eligible residents should register using the web-link and confirmation code on the postcard you received.
The last day to register for your free tree is October 30, 2019.
Please Note: All trees will be planted by Nashville Tree Foundation volunteers on November 23, 2019. Nashville Tree Foundation will also mark utilities in the yards being planted so that the trees do not interfere with underground utility lines.
