How it works

Who can pledge?

  • Davidson County residents
  • A family or household
  • Neighborhood associations
  • Businesses and nonprofits
  • Churches

*Even if you don’t meet the criteria above, we encourage you to still plant a tree.

What will you be pledging to do?

By adding your name to this pledge drive, you promise to plant a tree during the upcoming planting season. When the weather cools and planting season arrives, we will send you information via email about where to buy trees, the most important planting tips, and how to take care of your new plantings.

When is planting season?​

We encourage tree planting to take place between mid-October through March, depending on weather. You will receive updated information and news by taking the Pledge to Plant.

How can I help spread the word about the pledge?​

Share the excitement about tree planting! This pledge drive is designed to increase awareness of the Root Nashville campaign, and to encourage more and more Nashvillians to plant a tree.
