Why Free Trees?

Metro Davidson County is facing an increasingly diminishing tree canopy as an unintended consequence of its rapid growth and development, aging tree canopy, and the imminent devastation from the emerald ash borer. The benefits urban trees provide a community are many. They cool our homes, reducing electricity use, and improve our health by cleaning the air we breathe. They reduce stormwater flow and mitigate water pollution. By providing shade, trees reduce the “heat island” effect, especially important to our more vulnerable citizens. Trees add character and beauty to our neighborhoods. They provide a place for birds and squirrels to live and for children to play and create memories. A resilient city is one that has a healthy, growing urban forest. This canopy loss affects the well-being of every citizen. Click here to access the National Tree Benefit calculator and see just how much a tree saves you every year!
