THE PLANTING CAPTAIN STORY 

Root Nashville is a public-private campaign led by Metro Nashville and the Cumberland River Compact to plant 500,000 trees across Davidson County by 2050. Being a Neighborhood Planting Captain means spreading the word to your neighbors about the opportunity for free trees and encouraging them to sign up.
