Volunteers are needed for open events! To become a volunteer, complete the form on any “open” event page. Open events are highlighted with a blue box.
Our goal is to plant 100 trees in common areas and give away approximately 100 trees to the residents of the Candlewyck neighborhood in Charlotte.
Volunteers are asked to arrive by 10:00am. To ensure a safe and enjoyable event, we are limiting the number of volunteers to 50 for this event. Register early as our events “sell out” quickly.
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.
Events are held rain or shine. A modest rainfall actually provides ideal planting conditions.
Deadline to register to volunteer is Wednesday, September 28. Click here to register.
Once registered, more detailed information will be emailed to you the week of the event.
Residents are invited to come out, learn about trees and take a few home to plant. TreeMasters will be on hand to demonstrate proper techniques for planting and maintaining trees. If you are a resident of Candlewyck and would like to sign up for trees, please click here or the “Get Trees” button at the top of the page. Deadline to register for trees is Friday, September 23.
We cannot guarantee species type or quantities. Trees are 6-10′ tall, and will not be reserved or transported. This is a first come, first served event.
