You’re Barking Up the RIGHT Tree
Questions about TreesCharlotte? You’ve come to the right place! TreesCharlotte was created as a public/private collaboration dedicated to planting trees, primarily through volunteer efforts, and has since established itself as a 501(c)3 nonprofit. With many working parts involved, there are naturally many questions about this endeavor. If your specific question is not addressed here, please contact us.
TreesCharlotte benefits from strong community support.
First, consider volunteering to plant trees.
Second, consider making a donation to TreesCharlotte on on the website, or by sending a gift to TreesCharlotte Foundation, c/o Foundation For The Carolinas (see the mailing address under the ‘Donate’ tab above).
Third, spread the word about TreesCharlotte to your friends and neighbors.
Lastly, plant a tree in your yard and water and care for the trees you have – you and they will benefit! Tree care advice can be found on our Resources page.
The most recent revision of the tree ordinance goes a long way toward protecting a percentage of trees when new neighborhoods or commercial facilities are constructed, while still encouraging economic growth. The ordinance will help save 10-15% tree coverage in some areas, and requires more trees in parking lots. The ordinance is an important part of a multi-strategy solution to meet the canopy goal.
TreesCharlotte has both a Memorial Tree and Honorary program to celebrate the life of a special friend, colleague, or family member or to honor your family, friends, co-workers, or clients.
Due to the nature of our work, we are not able to place markings or identifiers on trees, nor can we tell you the exact location, unless you choose the Personal Tree option. We invite all of our tree dedicators and recipients to participate in our tree planting and tree care events. Please refer to our events calendar for upcoming opportunities.
Yes! Gifts of NeighborWoods Trees can be made to commemorate any occasion, including birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations and many more.
