Native trees for the burbs! Sugar Maple planted in Brentwood.
Northern Catalpa flowers in full bloom!
10 more trees planted today on Blair Blvd between Belmont Blvd and 19th. These street trees will eventually help shade the sidewalk for pedestrians and put a buffer between the cars on the road and people on the sidewalk. Studies show that tree lined streets slow the speed of drivers. Perceived drive-time is less and heart-rates are actually lower when streets have more trees! #SoundForest #PlantTrees #TreeLife #TreeLinedStreets
Huge shout out to @treesavvynashville for helping out in the Belmont-Hillsboro neighborhood today. Unfortunately many of the Elm trees we planted a few years back didn't make it. So we took them down today and we will be replacing them this fall! Huge thanks Mike!!! Give them a call if you need help with your pruning, tree care, or tree removal.

SoundForest tree catalog 001. This particular overcup oak is the first tree we planted back in December 2007. The overcup is a type of white oak tree. It has a unique acorn which is covered nearly entirely by the cap. This allows it to float to different locations in order to propagate in it's native bottomland swampy habitat. #SoundForest #PlantTrees #TreeLife #OvercupOak #ShadeTree
The yellow wood trees are in full bloom and buzzing this morning with bees! A carpenter bee and a honey bee are seen here gathering pollen. Each honey bee hive will collect 66 lbs of pollen per hive each year. A single honey bee will produce 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in its life and lives between 120 to 150 days. #nashville #honeybee #carpenterbee #yellowwoodtree #bloom #flower #springtime #polination #SoundForest #PlantTrees
SoundForest has planted over 26,000 trees helping improve our environment. Each year these trees grow and provide even greater benefits to the communities they are planted in. The best time to plant a tree was 25 years ago, the next best time is today! #trees #treecanopy #nashville #treelife #SoundForest #TreeShirts Wanna help the Planet? Help plant it!
Printed out multiple screen shots of Google Earth Maps and pasted them together. I inserted push pins showing the location of 600 SoundForest trees we have planted lining the streets in the Belmont-Hillsboro Neighborhood. #nashville #treecanopy #trees #StreetTrees #map #environmental #EcoCharity #earth #restoration #PlantTrees
