Help Us Plant 1 Million Native Trees By 2025
Our Goal: One Million Native Trees Planted in Tennessee by 2025.
Our goal is to plant and care for 1 million native trees in Tennessee by 2025. We have worked with the public and state agencies across Tennessee to distribute and plant trees in all 95 counties of Tennessee. As a result, the Tennessee Environmental Council has planted 679,100 trees since 2007. In 2015, the Council was awarded the Friend of Forestry Award, by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture’s Division of Forestry, for its large tree planting efforts.
Why is planting trees so important to us as an organization?
Our Tree Program total now stands at 679,100 native trees planted in Tennessee, providing the following ecological benefits:

Now Partnering With Root Nashville - How to Register Your Trees
Tennessee Environmental council is excited to partner with the Root Nashville campaign. We have a common goal to plant 50,000 trees in Davidson County by 2050.
Trees planted during 250K+ Tree Day event in 2019 are eligible to count toward this city-wide goal. An online mapping tool called TreePlotter is used to track our progress. As we plant trees across Davidson County, we will register each tree and place a point on the map on our website. Individuals or groups who want new trees they plant to be counted can register their trees on the Root Nashville website.
Reach out to us with any questions or concerns. We are happy to talk with you and provide more information on our program.
