Who is TreesCharlotte?

…and what do they do?

TreesCharlotte was established in 2012 as a public/private nonprofit collaboration to grow and diversify Charlotte’s urban forest by promoting tree stewardship, growing Charlotte’s tree canopy and educating how to plant and preserve trees. TreesCharlotte focuses on underserved communities and is a 501(c)3.

The most recent aerial analysis in 2012 showed that Charlotte’s tree canopy cover was 47%, but we know that age and development are driving that number down. We strive to plant at least 5,000 trees a year and educate our citizens about the importance of a strong urban canopy.
