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.

Trees for yards

Become a Neighborhood Planting Captain to bring trees to your neighborhood. Apply for 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.

Trees for places of worship, nonprofits, businesses

Now accepting applications for private properties that are interested in at least 10 trees for their site! Planning will take place in spring and summer, for potential projects in the fall and winter.

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.
