FREE Tree and Shrub Seedlings are Back!

General Information

For the past several years, the Town of Farragut has received a grant from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to purchase bare root seedlings. The town has used this grant funding for plant giveaways as well as planting projects throughout the area. This year, we will be giving away seedlings and restoring the stream buffer at the town’s Outdoor Classroom.
