Volunteers across the area will come to plant trees at Metro Nashville Schools and in private yards. In partnership with Nashville Electric Service, the Tree Foundation has planted hundreds of trees that coexist with power lines since ReLeafing Day began in 2002.

Free trees for eligible homes

Homes with a primary power line running across the front yard can register to receive a free tree provided by Nashville Electric Service, 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.

ReLeafing Day evolved out of Nashville Tree Foundation’s highly successful, award-winning ReLeaf Nashville project that planted 6,757 shade trees from 1998 to 2001 to replace some of the 20,000 felled by tornadoes April 16, 1998.

Where we will plant:

  • Residential planting area of Northeast Nashville - see map above

  • Metro Nashville Public Schools in Northeast Nashville and Madison
