Jennifer Smith, 615-862-8708

Ordering Deadlines are October 20, November 17, December 22, January 19, and March 17

In an effort to grow and improve Nashville’s urban tree canopy, the Nashville Tree Conservation Corps and the Metro Tree Advisory Committee are presenting the third annual Tree Sale. This sale makes it easy to plant a tree in your yard and, not only do something good for your family, but help to improve the health, beauty and well-being of the entire community. The trees sold will be mapped for the Root Nashville tree canopy campaign to plant 500,000 trees by 2050.

Featuring freshly dug nursery trees and delivered to your home, these trees can be planted by family, friends or for an additional fee, by a planting service. Canopy, understory and evergreen trees are being offered. Residents are encouraged to plant a canopy tree where there is space and there are no overhead utility lines. Check your chosen tree’s mature height and width to see if it is appropriate for your space
