Through the NeighborWoods program, TreesCharlotte, in partnership with Charlotte’s Neighborhood and Business Services, works with neighborhood groups in Charlotte to plant trees, educate residents about proper tree care and maintenance, and replensih the urban tree canopy.
Successful NeighborWoods events involve strong participation by residents and are generally limited to communities in which at least 150 trees can be given away and planted.
Charlotte’s Neighborhood Matching Grant (NMG) eligible communities can receive trees at no cost.*
Neighborhoods needing trees but outside the NMG geography can participate in the NeighborWoods program through the Tree It Forward option. TreesCharlotte depends on corporate, individual and foundation donations – all our trees are purchased with donated funds. Tree It Forward neighborhoods are asked to contribute a portion of the costs of trees and the community event. See NeighborWoods for details.
The tree planting season runs from October to April each year. NeighborWoods applications for the Fall 2017 – Spring 2018 planting season are now being accepted. Participation in one Pre-Application Workshop is required.
