As cities grow, city trees usually fall. The city of Nashville knows that only too well as their population has grown 45% since 2000. To remedy the loss of trees, they launched an ambitious initiative, Root Nashville, to plant 500,000 trees across the city by 2050. The Nashville Tree Foundation is an important part of the initiative, bringing trees to areas where there is an intersection of low canopy and low income by hosting free tree giveaways.
