NES’ Video To Sprout New Trees Around Nashville
Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Electric Service (NES) will plant more trees in Nashville just for watching its newest video – Right Tree. Right Place.
NES wants you to know what trees are safe to plant near power lines and how to avoid tree trimming in the future. The utility will contribute $1 to its tree-planting fund for each “like” or “share” the video receives on Facebook during the months of June and July.
The NES tree‐planting program provides trees for ReLeaﬁng Day and Arbor Day plantings throughout Nashville.
“We have more than 250 likes and shares on the video, but we want that number to increase before the end of this month,” said Laurie Parker, NES’ social media coordinator. “The more “likes” we get, the more trees we can plant. One “like” equals one dollar.”
NES had success with a similar tree-planting promotion in 2010. NES encouraged customers to enroll in paperless billing with NES E-bill. In turn, the utility was able to contribute close to $8,000 to its tree fund thanks to the large number of sign-ups.
