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.  If you would like to make a contribution and add your name and logo to our list of sponsors, please contact [email protected] ASAP. We give away seedlings at no cost to volunteers who agree to plant them on February 24 and post pictures and/or videos of your efforts.
