Memorial Tree Planting Program
Our Memorial Tree Planting Program is an ongoing program of the TN State Parks Conservancy and will help improve the tree canopy in TN State Parks throughout the state over time. We will plant trees in Parks that are in memory of those that cared for the Parks. We also partner with local organizations like Nashville Tree Conservation Corps, Hale & Hines Nursery and Turnip Truck. Would you like to remember a loved one by having a tree planted in a park? You can donate here.
Our garden programs in our TN State Parks not only are beautiful, they are also used for interpretive programming. Our herb gardens focus on the significance of the herbs and their uses in history. Our pollinator gardens are used to educate others on how gardens can be a food source for all of us, how they encourage pollinators and also provide habitats for wildlife. We have a Historical Herb Garden located at Cordell Hull State Park. Additionally, we have a Butterfly Garden located at Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park and a Wild Garden at Seven Islands State Park.
