Event Description

Does GINI have any members who are planting trees during the day on February 16 as part of the 10,000 Trees project?

Does anyone have any unwanted saplings that we can dig to transplant where they're wanted?

We seem to have little tulip trees and white pines popping up everywhere in the summer. Can we grab some of these little trees in the next few days and transplant them on the 16th? They don't have to be planted in a public place, if you know a home owner or land owner who would like to have some additional trees.

Background info:

On February 16, Tennessee Environmental Council along with several member groups, partners and sponsors will plant 10,000 trees in one day. Planting a tree is a simple act with TREEmendous benefits.  Trees have a myriad of benefits – too many to list them all – but here are a few surprising and important facts:   

  • Communities with more trees have less crime and graffiti.
  • Communities with more trees have less asthma and lung disease.
  • Homes with a mature tree in the yard may be worth up to 10% more than a similar home without a mature tree.
  • One tree can provide $130,750 in total benefits over 50 years including oxygen, air pollution control and reducing flooding.
