ReLeafing Day



Nashville Sat, Nov 23, 2019 8:30 AM
Croft Middle School Sat, Nov 17, 2018 8:30 AM
Volunteers across the county will come to plant trees at Metro Nashville Schools and in private yards. In partnership with Nashville Electric Service, the Tree Foundation has planted hundreds of trees that coexist with power lines since ReLeafing Day began in 2002.



Join Team Lightning and Nashville Tree Foundation for an annual tree planting that takes place every year the weekend before Thanksgiving. Trees provide shade, help to filter air pollution, create an oxygen rich environment, and reduce flooding by absorbing great amounts of ground water.  Learn how to plant and care for your own trees, while also joining forces with Team Lightning to make Nashville a greener community to live in!

When: Saturday, November 23rd from 8:30am-12noon

ReLeafing Day is the Nashville Tree Foundation’s fall planting held every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving since 2002 with volunteers across the county planting trees in public spaces and private yards. In partnership with Nashville Electric Service, the Foundation has planted hundreds of powerline approved trees since 2005. ReLeafing Day evolved out of Nashville Tree Foundation’s highly successful award-winning ReLeaf Nashville project that planted 6,757 shade trees from 1998-2001 to replace some of the 20,000 felled by the tornadoes on April 16, 1998.
