Our Donors

Every Great Tree Has a Strong Root System; So Do We

TreesCharlotte is dedicated to protecting and improving our canopy through planting, conserving, and educating. Without the generous support of our team of donors, this mission could not possibly be realized. We are eternally grateful for our strong roster of dedicated supporters.
