NES Plants Trees for 16th Annual Releafing Day

Nashville Electric Service (NES) has proudly supported the Nashville Tree Foundation’s ReLeafing Day since it began 16 years ago.

This year NES President and CEO Decosta Jenkins joined Nashville Mayor John Cooper on Saturday, Nov. 23 to plant 175 trees at Maplewood High School.

ReLeafing Day is held every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. In partnership with NES, the Tree Foundation has planted hundreds of power line-friendly trees around Nashville, which reduces the need for trimming as they grow to maturity.

If you’re inspired to add some green to your street, be sure to plant smart.
