Opportunity to Support Our East Nashville Community

The Nashville Tree Conservation Corps is hosting a winter tree planting on Shelby Avenue this Saturday, January 23, 2021. What are some of the benefits of urban trees? According the the South Carolina Forestry Commission, urban trees:

  • Add beauty and improve personal health
  • Reduce air pollution
  • Conserve water and reduce soil erosion
  • Save energy
  • Modify local climate
  • Increase economic stability
  • Reduce noise pollution
  • Create wildlife and plant diversity
  • Increase property values
