Trees Make for Cleaner Water in Nashville

Nashville, TN (December 18, 2012) – A $300,000 federal grant is helping public and private landowners plant more trees along Nashville’s urban creeks and waterways. Several watersheds are targeted to receive native trees to help clean the water and improve the municipal water supply. More trees will also reduce flooding along riparian areas. So far, the state has worked with a dozen organizations and more than 400 volunteers to plant 2,716 trees at seven sites throughout Middle Tennessee. See the video.
