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 planting 500,000 trees by 2050, promoting tree stewardship 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 2014 showed that Charlotte’s tree canopy cover was 47%. Our hope is that Charlotte will achieve 50% tree canopy coverage by 2050 and remain The City of Trees for generations to come.
