Special Tree-Planting Event, this Saturday, Nov 18

Neighborhood-Wide Tree Planting
Magdeburg Oak Planting
Saturday, Nov 18th

The neighborhood will be participating with the Nashville Tree Foundation in a demonstration tree planting, focusing on selecting appropriate trees for planting under utility lines. NES is also a partner in the project and purchased the 35 trees being planted. Residents whose properties were approved for the trees will be assisted with the digging and planting by about 30-40 volunteers recruited by the Tree Foundation.

Meet at the corner of 5th and Monroe at 10:00 AM to get equipment and find volunteers to help. Neighbors who are not planting their own tree are encouraged to come out and participate in the whole effort.

In addition to the demonstration tree planting, a rather significant event will occur at 10:45 in Morgan Park with the planting of the Magdeburg Oak. The Oak is a gift to Nashville from the people of Magedeburg, Germany, Nashville`s Sister city.

Mayor Purcell is expected to participate with representatives from Sister Cities and Metro Parks and Greenways to plant the tree.

It will be a part of landscaping along a new Greenway spur to be designated the Magdeburg Greenway. We hope you will come to share in this celebratory tree planting event.
