Evergreen City-wide TreeStore – Open to All

December 1 2018, 9:45 AM - 11:00 AM

Are you a resident of Charlotte?  Do you need some trees for your yard? With generous support from Piedmont Natural Gas, we are focusing this TreeStore on evergreens.

  • Each Charlotte household is eligible for up to two free trees.
  • TreesCharlotte’s mission is to help the City of Charlotte reach their goal of 50% tree canopy by 2050.  We therefore limit our efforts to expand the canopy within Charlotte’s city limits and limit participation to Charlotte residents only (unfortunately, we do not serve Matthews, Mint Hill, Pineville, Huntersville, Davidson, Cornelius, other municipalities outside Charlotte, or Mecklenburg County).
  • Proof of Charlotte residency (such as a driver’s license, utility bill, etc.) must be shown at the event in order to participate.
  • A valid email address is required to register.
  • You will complete and sign a Stewardship Pledge Form (mandatory) and declare your pledge to take care of the tree(s) we provide.
  • At the TreeStore, you will be trained on how to properly plant and care for your tree(s).  Tree training is mandatory.
  • We cannot guarantee species type or quantities and will not know what will be available until the morning of the event.
  • Trees are in 7-gallon containers, range from 6-10′ tall, and will not be reserved or transported.

TreesCharlotte is a non-profit organization that relies on donations to be able to host events like this.  A suggested donation of $20 is greatly appreciated and would help us give more trees to Charlotte residents.

The TreeStore will be open for pre-registrants only at 9am.  The general public is invited to start shopping at 9:45am.  If you wish to pre-register or volunteer, click here.   Registration for trees will open November 12. 

Expect long lines.
