Applications being accepted for urban forestry grants

Posted: Tuesday, July 14, 2009 8:01 pm

The Tennessee Department of Agriculture Division of Forestry is now accepting proposals for community tree planting projects. County and city governments and private non-profit organizations may apply for grants up to $20,000.
“Thanks to the General Assembly, we’re proud to again offer these grants through the Agricultural Enhancement program to help improve urban forest environments in communities across the state,” said state Agriculture Commissioner Ken Givens.
The urban forestry project funds must be used for planting trees on public land, such as parks, streets, greenways or other local public places. Eligible items include the cost of trees, shipping, contracted planting labor and mulch.
