TreesCharlotte has approximately 150 Oak trees that are looking for new homes. Species include Willow Oak, Upperton Willow Oak, and Nutall Oak.
Each Charlotte household is eligible for up to three 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.
The Oaks are 6-10′ tall, and will not be reserved or transported.
This is a first come, first served event as quantities are limited.
