Kind Words From Our Supporters



“Thanks to each of you for all that
you are doing for Charlotte and Park Ridge community! Residents of our neighborhood to include my family, came out to the event this past Saturday to pick up trees. This is a  beautiful time of the year and we all will be reminded of the commitment of your organization and personal care you have shown us for many years to come.”

Charles Breitbart

Park Ridge Homeowners Association

“Trees Charlotte provided a venue for students to demonstrate good stewardship and enhance their understanding of environmental issues. Through this hands-on project they were able to partner with their community and contribute to a healthier future for all. The children were able to make connections relating to photosynthesis, deforestation, animal habitats, wood products, and the Amazon Rain Forest.”

“I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the wonderful event you brought to our beloved Lakewood community! It is so amazing to know that great people like your volunteers and yourselves can organize so many of these great opportunities for neighbors to get together and improve their homes, grow the tree canopy and just get outside and enjoy the beautiful Carolina weather! Thank you so much for including us in this wonderful celebration of trees!”

“Winget Park Elementary has some new additions, thanks to the school’s Nature Club and TreesCharlotte. Despite the wet weather this past Saturday, 75 volunteers came out and planted 153 trees on the school campus.”

“As a recipient of two trees at Sedgefield Elementary I want to commend you and the staff for a well organized and informative event. Everything including registration, a description of the trees, the instruction of proper tree planting and overall assistance was first rate. I manage a couple of non-profits and know how much time and attention is required to properly orchestrate public events. You guys did a great job.”

Stan Patterson

Colonial Village

“We are so grateful for the two Maple trees that Trees Charlotte donated to Park Road Montessori. Our school naturalist, Charlotte Fletcher, planted these two trees with the assistance of some of our older students. We planted these trees together outside of two of our classrooms, near our lunchtime picnic tables. Our students, teachers and parents will enjoy watching these trees grow and become part of our daily space. We value our outdoor area and classroom gardens, the maple trees just add so much to our space. Thank you for providing this treasured gift to our school.”

“We had such a blast participating in the event on Friday! I even saw the video clip on Friday evening’s news! We couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend our volunteer time. Trees Charlotte made it a wonderful event for us and we all left the event having learned something new and with a feeling of warmth in our hearts. I will absolutely pass this onto the rest of the group. Also, what a great picture!! We will definitely stay in touch for future events!”

“I wanted to drop you a note to tell you what a great success the TreesCharlotte event was at Stone Creek Ranch. All the preplanning and the teamwork displayed created an environment conducive to success plus we had a lot of fun doing it. Your team did a fantastic job in making sure we secured the trees requested and the coordination with the actual planting of the trees was flawless. Best of luck to you and your team at all future events.”

“The Trees Charlotte was an amazing experience for the residents of Stone Creek Ranch. It was a great way to bring the community together for a great cause that both enhanced our community and helped the environment. Organizer, Dave Cable, his staff and team of volunteers did a great job of organizing the event from start to finish. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of trees and the level of education provided. I look forward to having them work in other communities that I manage.”

“Thank you so much Dave!! What an amazing day! Everything ran so smoothly, and I couldn’t believe how quickly we were able to plant all those trees. The parents were very impressed, and that is a hard thing to pull off with that crowd! I can’t express how much it meant to me to see all those little kids out there taking part in such a beautiful event. They truly did change the world on Saturday. I think it will be something they will remember forever, and they will be able to bring their families back to see the trees they planted in 2016. It was just so cool!! Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of something so special. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.”

Wendy White

“Where did all those trees come from?”  That was the response so many of our students gave as they arrived on campus Monday morning!  Thank you to Trees Charlotte, The Charlotte Observer and the countless volunteers that made this a reality.  Because of you, the impact on this campus and this community will last for the next 100 years!”
