We are always looking for volunteers! To become a volunteer, complete the form on any event marked with a blue ribbon!
Having completed a NeighborWoods Application and thanks to the generosity of LendingTree, Charlotte 2020 Host Committee and 2020 Convention Planners, TreesCharlotte is pleased to partner with the Caldwell Farms neighborhood to plant trees in their common areas and to provide trees to their residents. Residents are invited to enjoy coffee and donuts, talk to tree experts about the right trees for their yard, take a 15-minute tree-planting clinic and bring home up to three trees!
Pre-registration for trees is required by clicking here. You must be a resident of Caldwell Farms. Deadline to register is Sunday, Feb. 2nd.
The tree give-a-away portion of the day will run from 9:00-10:00am.
The trees: Tentative species list is yet to be determined. Once confirmed, a list of species will be emailed to registrants. (Trees are a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved in advance)
Tree specs: 5-10 feet tall, 1-inch caliper, aged 2-4 years old, potted in 7-gallon containers. Trees would retail for $75-$150.
Tree clinic: Every recipient will attend a tree-planting clinic the morning of the event (15 minutes) and sign a stewardship pledge.
Registration: Registration is required. If you register, please make every effort to pick up trees the morning of February 8 or arrange for somebody to pick them up for you. Registration does not guarantee species; all trees are first-come, first-served the morning of the event.
Volunteers and TreeMasters are needed to help plant 32 trees for residents unable to do so and to help with tree and mulch distribution. The planting portion of this event will take place from 10:00-11:00am.
To ensure a safe and enjoyable event, we are limiting the number of volunteers to 20 for this TreeDay. Register early as our events “sell out” quickly. 15 spots remain, but we are still looking for a few TreeMasters!
Tree planting events are great for families and everyone is welcome. To ensure accurate active volunteer counts, please list all participants on the registration form, along with children’s ages. Children 16 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
Deadline to register to volunteer is February 9.
Once registered, more detailed information will be emailed to you the week of the event.
