TREES

A single tree can intercept over 1,500 gallons of stormwater per year.

Cities need trees! Trees filter pollutants from stormwater, clean the air, regulate temperature, prevent erosion, and provide habitat and shade for wildlife. Trees are crucial to protecting waterways and public health.

The Cumberland River Compact leads Nashville in a city-wide effort, Root Nashville, to replant our urban tree canopy and ensure it grows to help make Nashville a cleaner, healthier, and cooler city. Learn more about the campaign, the partners, and how you can get involved!

WATERING NEWLY PLANTED TREES

While it’s important to plant trees, it’s just as important to maintain them. Through our Tree Care Program, newly planted trees are watered, pruned, and cared for to ensure their long-term survival.
