Get Involved

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

Become 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! The next application window opens in January, and future opportunities will be accepted on a rolling basis.

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.

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.
