On February 24 2018, we will plant 250,000 native tree seedlings across Tennessee.* This will be the largest community-tree-planting event in Tennessee history, and is the largest tree-planting event in the United States (click here to learn about other tree-planting efforts across the US). The Council is seeking sponsors and donors to cover the costs of seedlings and logistics of planning this event. Bundles will be prepackaged containing 1 each of 5 different tree species. No exceptions. If you would like to make a contribution and add your name and logo to our list of sponsors, please contact Kelly West at [email protected] ASAP.
