  • Don't top your trees

  • Stay clear of power lines and underground pipes


Taking Root NKY

Taking Root is a collaborative, broad-based campaign to address the current historic loss of our region's tree canopy by planting trees, better managing our local forests, promoting the many benefits of healthy trees, and fostering a sense of stewardship among individuals and communities.

The goal is to plant 2 million trees - one for every person in the region!
