Study looks at best spots to plant trees in Nashville, TN

Study looks at best spots to plant trees in Nashville | tennessean.com | The Tennessean:
Nashville is greener than many other cities, boasting more tree canopy than Atlanta, Washington or Seattle.

But Davidson County's first-ever tree assessment, including its most urban areas, shows where more trees could be added, including a possibility that trees could shade almost two-thirds of downtown.

It would take a lot of trees — 197,213 — to add 1 percent more canopy countywide.

To guide the greening effort, volunteers who plant trees along neighborhood streets will have to get Metro approval of what and where they plan to plant.
