Spring Planting Party – Trace Creek at Stephens Valley

April 6 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Free

Join the celebration with the Cumberland River Compact as we connect our roots to rivers during our Spring Planting Party weekend! Our Root Nashville vision of planting 500,000 trees in Davidson County by 2050 is built upon grassroots support from the Nashville community and is a public-private campaign made possible in partnership with Metro Nashville. Show up and lend your support on April 6, 2024 to help us achieve our vision! 

This 15+ event is a rain date for our postponed tree planting events on March 15 & 16 along Trace Creek at Stephens Valley in southwest Nashville. Throughout the week, eight groups of volunteers helped us plant over 280 1-inch native caliper trees along Trace Creek, where the Cumberland River Compact is completing Tennessee’s largest suburban stream restoration project. There are about 100 trees left to be planted – help us get them in the ground before the end of the planting season!

Please note that while this event is open to the general public as well as members of the Stephens Valley community, all participants must be at least 15 years of age due to the uneven terrain and large size of the site. Volunteers will be taught the foundations of planting a tree in a way that encourages the long-term viability of the tree. All tree planting supplies will be provided — however, volunteers are encouraged to bring their own gloves and shovels!

A healthy tree canopy leads to clean air and clean waters, meaning improved well-being and local waterways for local Nashvillians to thrive in. From about mid-October through the end of March every season, our Root Nashville team is out delivering hundreds of trees every week to neighborhoods all across Nashville — now’s your chance to get involved in the impact! Registration is required. We hope to see you there!
