Reed Landscaping Steps Up to Help Nashville After Spring Tornado’s

by | Jul 1, 2020

After Nashville, Tennessee was devastated by early spring tornados, Reed Landscaping stepped to the forefront of the relief and cleanup effort. Volunteering equipment, manpower, and direction, Michael Poe and his team were able to jumpstart the cleanup effort and get Nashville back on its feet.

Reed Landscaping has been a member of Greater Nashville Community for over 11 years. Our team doesn’t just work here, but they live here, and have friends and family who live here as well. “That’s why when tornadoes tore through our community, we knew exactly what needed done,” says Michael Poe, Chief Executive Officer of Reed Landscaping. “This was not a time to sit back and wait, but rather a time to take action to help those around us, and that is just what we did.”

With the help of hundreds of volunteers from all walks of life, Reed Landscaping has been helping to pick up the pieces following these destructive early spring tornadoes. With the overwhelming destruction from these storms it is taking a true team effort to put this area back on its feet. Reed was one of the first to volunteer equipment and manpower for this cleanup effort and have promised to be here until the job is complete.

At one site alone there is a 60 mile path of destruction that their crews and volunteers have worked to clear. Reed Landscaping, along with Cantrell Construction and Beaver Stuff And Tree Service, arrived on site, and surveyed the progress. People from all walks of life and experience were out to help with this tragedy. One unique thing these companies brought with them was experience. Through their time in the military (Johnny Cantrell is a former Army Medic, Michael Poe is former Navy, and David Rankin from Beaver Stuff and Tree Service is a Disabled Marine Combat Veteran) they were able to take control of the site, and start directing the cleanup effort. Through their leadership, they were able to clear four full acres of land from dangerous timber, and other obstacles in a short amount of time. This was a true example of America coming together when it was needed to make sure that people are cared for.

Reed Landscaping has been uniquely qualified to help the Nashville area recover from this disaster. With a focus on large scale, commercial landscapes and hardscape development, Reed had the equipment and personnel needed to really kick the clean-up effort into high gear. With the help of Johnny Cantrell Construction, and others, Reed Landscaping is leading the way in helping to put Nashville back together following these storms.
