Given the ongoing clean up efforts after the devastating storms here in Wilson and surrounding counties earlier this week, and the need for volunteers for those efforts, the Weed Wrangle® initially slated for this weekend at Cedars of Lebanon State Park has been rescheduled. The new date is Saturday, 4 April 2020. To participate, meet at the Nature Center by 9:00 a.m. Regardless of the weather, you are encouraged to wear long pants and sturdy shoes or boots (no sandals or flip-flops!).
Weed Wrangle® is a one-day, area-wide, volunteer effort to help rescue our public parks and green spaces from non-native invasive species through hands-on removal of especially harmful trees, vines, and flowering plants. Supervised by an expert in invasive weed management, Weed Wrangle® volunteers learn, practice and begin a habit of maintaining an area free of non-native invasive plants and encourage replanting with natives in removal areas. By engaging our neighbors and challenging them to take action in their own spaces, we hope to create a movement that will have the greatest impact on the invasive plant population.
On Tennessee Tree Day, you and thousands of other Tennessee residents will collectively pick up and plant thousands of native tree-seedlings in all 95 Tennessee counties. Any trees ordered for Tree Day are yours to plant on your own property and will enhance our environment and communities for generations to come!
You pick what species you want and the exact quantity of each type. Certain species are very limited, however, and due to popularity, they will sell out quickly.
As a nonprofit organization, we depend on your support for Tennessee Tree Day to be successful. Tree seedlings are available on a donation basis of $2.49/tree & 4.99/tree based on species. Tree seedling size will range from 1 ft to 3 ft. Pick-up sites cannot accept cash donations, so trees must be reserved and paid for by the last day to order them, which is March 1st.
If you live in a neighboring state, you are invited to participate as long as you are willing to drive to one of the pick-up locations and pick up your trees during the published time frame.
