Nashville. In this season of reflection about what we each value, we want to pause on this designated ‘Giving Tuesday’ to share with you the work of an organization we admire, The Land Trust for Tennessee.
The Land Trust for Tennessee works effectively with citizens across our state to protect our scenic vistas and our history, with a responsibility to our children and grandchildren.
Most recently, more than 4,000 acres of forestland was protected in Franklin and Marion Counties of the South Cumberland region, a project that was nurtured for five years.
So, please join our Publisher, Kathryn Nash, and the team at Nashville Interiors, in support of The Land Trust for Tennessee.

Nashville Interiors selected The Land Trust for Tennessee as our 2016 philanthropic partner and featured the non-profit organization in our annual print magazine. This advertisement was included in our pages as an in-kind donation to help promote their important cultural and conservation efforts across Tennessee.
We invite you to start a conversation with the Land Trust for Tennessee if you own property (small or large parcels) and want to learn more about the many benefits of a conservation easement.
MORE ABOUT THE WORK OF THE LAND TRUST FOR TENNESSEE
Historic Land– 58% of adult travelers include an historic activity on their trip. Conserving historic lands protects the context of historic structures and sites while safeguarding our rich history for future generations.
Working Farms– 41% of Tennessee’s acreage is farmland. Conserving farms promotes a major industry in Tennessee and preserves landscapes that distinguish our state.
Recreational/Scenic Landscapes– Conserving our natural resources and open spaces is essential for protecting our clean water, air and places to hunt, fish and play. Outdoor recreation and open natural space are vital to the physical and emotional health of the community.
Water Protection – Land bordering our rivers, lakes and streams filters pollution before it reaches our drinking water. If we do not remove the pollutants that our society puts into the air and water, we consume them ourselves.
Urban Open Space – 50% of homebuyers would be willing to pay more than 10% extra for a house near a park or protected open space. Protecting and creating green space in urban areas enhance the quality of life, public health and foster a sense of place.
Wildlife Habitat – Protecting habitats is especially critical for Tennessee, one of the most biodiverse states in the country.
