Planting Nassau's Future

Planting Nassau’s Future is a Keep Nassau Beautiful (KNB) program. The primary mission of the program is to beautify spaces in Nassau County. As the eastern gateway to the sunshine state, we want to preserve our beaches, green pastures, timberlands, and all the beautiful areas in-between. Weather events, age, and increasing development can impact these environments so we must start somewhere in order to make an impact for all of our futures.

4. Adopt-A-Tree

Thanks to generous partners, donors, and volunteers, Keep Nassau Beautiful can host free tree events.  Since the introduction of Planting Nassau's Future in 2020, we have distributed more than 2,600 free trees to Nassau County, FL residents.

All 520 trees in our Spring 2023 Adopt A Tree event have been reserved!
Our next Adopt A Tree event is planned to take place in October of 2023. If you were unable to reserve trees for spring 2023 or you just want to get a head start on the fall event, add your name to our early notification list.  You will be contacted about reserving trees in the fall before the reservation publicity goes out.
