Hey everyone! We have been hard at work planting street trees in the Belmont-Hillsboro Neighborhood of Nashville. Over the past few years we have planted over 600 trees that now line the streets! Our primary focus has been planting trees in the planting-strip between the sidewalk and street. These trees help shade the sidewalk and provide an added buffer between pedestrians and cars. Much of the space has power-lines located overhead so we alway choose the proper tree for the space. We are super excited about the three block stretch of 18th Ave. South between Portland and Blair. Here, the city installed a new sidewalk with a planting strip. We planted over 40 trees including 25 rudbud trees and three types of maples.
Super excited about the BHN "Wood for the Hood" fundraiser on Earthday. We love Belmont-Hillsboro's enthusiasm for planting trees. We set up some potted redbuds to line the entrance to the party!
