Arbor Week Kick-off City-Wide TreeStore

March 10 2018, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Are you a resident of Charlotte?  Do you need some trees for your yard?  TreesCharlotte is hosting a free TreeStore.  Each Charlotte household is eligible for up to two free trees.  Proof of Charlotte residency (such as a driver’s license, utility bill, etc.) as well as a valid email address must be provided in order to participate.  One of the missions of TreesCharlotte is to help the City of Charlotte and City Council reach their goal of 50% tree canopy by 2050.  We therefore limit our efforts to expand the canopy within city limits and limit participation to Charlotte residents.

At the TreeStore, you will be trained on how to properly plant and care for your tree(s).  Tree training is mandatory.  You will then be asked to complete and sign a Stewardship Pledge Form with your home and email address (mandatory) and declare your pledge to take care of the tree(s) we provide.

We cannot guarantee species type or quantities.  Trees are 6-10′ tall, and will not be reserved or transported.

This is a first come, first served event as quantities are limited.

TreesCharlotte is a non-profit organization that relies on donations to be able to host events like this.  A suggested donation of $5 per tree is greatly appreciated and would help us to give more trees to Charlotte residents.

Volunteers and TreeMasters are needed to help move and distribute trees and mulch to participants.  Please complete the form below to register to volunteer.  Deadline to register is Sunday, March 4.
