ROOT Nashville

The Mayor of Nashville launched a campaign in October 2018 to plant and care for 500,000 trees across Nashville by 2050. Julie Berbiglia learns about the collaboration behind this effort with various non-profits, government agencies, private companies, philanthropic partners, volunteers, and citizens. The campaign is designed to increase the city’s tree canopy and create a more equitable distribution of the health and sustainability benefits of urban trees across all neighborhoods.
