Free Trees for Charlotte Residents
After residents choose from a variety of trees, TreesCharlotte delivers the trees to a central location, and coordinates volunteers and TreeMasters to assist throughout the morning. Residents go through a tree planting and care training session and are asked to sign a stewardship pledge form.
Twice every year, in the fall and in the spring, TreesCharlotte holds a Citywide Free TreeStore, in which all residents of Charlotte are eligible to receive up to two free trees. Held at the City of Charlotte’s Landscape Management office, the Citywide Free TreeStore offers nearly 1,000 trees that are 6 to 10 feet in height from more than 20 species ranging from small to large maturing varieties.
