Trees Please! 

It is tree planting time at the Cumberland River Compact. Trees are the most effective way that we have to help filter rain water and improve the health of our local streams. They provide shade, prevent erosion, and provide habitat for wildlife. Be a sweetheart this February and plant some trees!

Our volunteers got busy right away this year, helping with our efforts to restore the riparian buffer by planting tree seedlings in Pennington Bend, an area which is still recovering from the 2010 flood. A huge thanks to our friends at Cornerstone Church for volunteering their time and energy!

It's a Fact! 

Did you know that a typical middle-sized tree intercepts around 2400 gallons of water a year?! That is 2400 gallons of water captured and  filtered, thereby improving water quality, and reducing stormwater runoff and flooding.
