Get Involved

While planting trees is one way you can help the Root Nashville campaign, there are other ways you can help us accomplish our city’s goal.

Volunteer as a Neighborhood Planting Captain

Apply for 50 free 1"-caliper trees for your neighborhood, and then spread the word to your neighbors about the opportunity! Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.


Sign up at the link below for upcoming planting and tree preparation events, free workshops and educational opportunities, and more.

Register Your Newly Planted Trees

Plant a tree on your own, and then log it towards the citywide goal by adding it to TreePlotter. Every 1"-caliper or larger tree, or smaller trees that have survived their first year after planting, can count.

Your green can keep Nashville green. Support goes straight towards the purchase of trees, to be planted in high-need impact areas.

Follow and Share

The Root Nashville campaign is a citywide movement -- so that means that we hope for all Nashvillians to learn about the importance of our urban canopy. Follow us on social media and share to help us spread the word.
