HRWA is looking for tree planting sites throughout the watershed
Do you know of a location that looks like this?


We are looking for areas where:

  • Trees and stream bank vegetation were washed away in the 2010 flood, leaving the stream bank bare. 

  • The river is eroding the banks away and exposing soil (Soil is a leading cause of pollution in the Harpeth River Watershed!). 

  • The stream bank has been mowed to the edge and cooperating owners would like to reforest their property and stabilize the stream bank.  (At least 35 ft)

  • We are NOT limited to just the Harpeth River Watershed!!  

HRWA will be accepting emails and phone calls with potential tree planting sites from September 15th through October 31st. 
We will be assessing sites, prioritizing, and planting from January through March 2014. 


HRWA's 2013 stream cleanups were a HUGE SUCCESS and we are looking for places to do more cleanups. If you know of a place along the river that has trash , let us know, and it could become a site for a future cleanup project.


Please contact Cooper Breeden at or call him at (615)790-9767 if you know of a potential site for trees plantings or cleanups.
