2021 Successes

Thanks to you our second year as a nonprofit in Tennessee has been a success - and it’s not over yet. As 2021 comes to a close we wanted to reflect on some of the highlights of the year, which you made possible through volunteering, planting trees, and your donations.

  • In November Green Interchange organized a tree-planting ceremony to honor veterans and first responders at Fire Station #10 in Clarksville, TN. We planted 10 oak trees which have important significance to the military. Bridgestone Americas sponsored the event.

  • In December we planted 45 trees at the Bridgestone Americas Distribution Center in Lebanon near Highway 109 and I-840.

  • 7,500 trees were planted in yards and the community by over 1,750 volunteers as part of Plant a Tree for Tennessee in April. These were bare-root saplings. We'll be offering this event again on April 16, 2022 - if you'd like to be a pickup location leader, sign up here.

  • 80 bigger trees were planted by over 33 volunteers in yards as part of Plant a BIGGER Tree for Tennessee in the fall! These trees were 5-7 foot tall! If you want a BIGGER tree for the holidays, scroll down for details!

  • In March 2021 we planted 250 large trees (6-8 feet each) along creeks, streams and/or rivers in Middle Tennessee as part of our Waterways program. We planted in Lebanon, at Thurgood Marshall Middle School in Antioch, and near the Duck River in Spring Hill.

  • In June we hosted an online sweepstakes as part of the Mississippi River Network River Days of Action. Participants took a total of 162 actions including picking up litter, visiting a stream or riverside park, planting native plants, taking boat rides, and signing up for the River Citizen program.

  • Three amazing interns helped us this year: Nora Johnson, Jack McCaffrie, and Jessica Poe!

As a new nonprofit organization, we could not be more proud of all that we accomplished together. Your support truly makes a difference.
