Students Plant Trees for Nashville’s ReLeafing Day

ReLeafing DayBelmont student members of Beta- Beta-Beta, ECO, and SMACS , along with Dr. John Niedzwiecki, faculty advisor for ECO, participated in ReLeafing Day, the Nashville Tree Foundation’s fall planting event. Held every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, ReLeafing Day was held in the Northwest Nashville neighborhoods of Bordeaux, Haynes Manor, Haynes Park, in public parks and along Titans Way with the Cumberland River Compact. Volunteers across the county come to plant trees in public spaces and private yards.

Belmont’s team planted four trees with the Nashville Tree Foundation. In partnership with Nashville Electric Service, the Tree Foundation has planted hundreds of trees that coexist with power lines since ReLeafing Day began in 2002.
