NeighborWoods Formal Application

NeighborWoods: Formal application

Congrats, your neighborhood/organization has made it to the next step in the TreesCharlotte NeighborWoods process. Now, we need you to go through our formal application process. Once you’ve submitted all elements, TreesCharlotte staff will review and contact you.

NeighborWoods Formal Application

  • Part 1: About your organization

  • What is the name of your neighborhood, school or organization?
  • What is your organization’s address (please include zip code)? If you’re applying on behalf of a neighborhood, please describe your neighborhood boundaries.
  • Approximately how many homes are in your neighborhood? (if applicable)
  • Part 2: Point of contacts

  • Please provide a second point of contact - name, telephone number, email address.
  • List any organizations you will collaborate with to host your NeighborWoods event. This could include businesses, churches, plant nurseries, community schools or other partners who may be providing volunteers, refreshments, funds, entertainment and/or other supporting resources. Please describe their contributions. (Note: This is not a requirement.)
  • Please provide date, time and address of any upcoming board and/or neighborhood meetings that TreesCharlotte staff could attend to promote the event and answer questions. Please describe the type of meeting.
  • Send us a letter from your HOA, board of directors or other governing body indicating its support for your requested project.
  • Part 3: The project

  • Please explain how a NeighborWoods tree event would make a difference in your neighborhood/school/organization and what you hope to accomplish.
  • If you are interested in a TreesCharlotte planting event for open/common spaces, please provide us a map of your neighborhood/campus and circle the areas where you envision us planting trees together. If you can, give us a sense of what kinds of trees you'd like - "screening" or "flowering" or "shade" - that helps. See sample of how simple it can be:
  • If you’re applying to host a TreeStore, where TreesCharlotte will bring trees for residents to plant in their yards, we ask that you gauge your neighbors’ interest through a TreeStore Participant Interest Survey. You can conduct this survey through a Google form or by paper (see links to both below this form). This survey simply shows TreesCharlotte there is broad interest (at least 15 trees to be given out); it does not commit neighbors to taking a tree at this point. We suggest that you circulate and promote your interest survey for 2-3 weeks and then submit your results via this form.
