The Cumberland River Compact and the Nashville Tree Foundation will be planting over 200 trees in our great city on Saturday, November 19. Power line-approved trees, provided by NES, will be planted at qualified homes in Hadley Park and Nations neighborhoods and on TSU’s campus to grow near power lines without need for trimming.
