Feel the Fall Citywide TreeStore Nov. 9, 2019

November 9 2019, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Fall is a wonderful time of year to add the beauty and health of trees to your yard. Lucky for you, we’re giving 400 trees away at our Feel the Fall TreeStore!

We’ll have a big mix of species, from small flowering to canopy building to evergreen screening. There’s something for everybody!

Did you know that fall is the best time to plant a tree?! Fall gives your new tree several months of cooler weather so that it can concentrate on root establishment rather than leaf production. And, the fall and winter tend to be rainy – nature’s tree watering system!

Here’s what you need to know: 

  • Each Charlotte household is eligible for up to two free trees.  Limit 2 trees per address.
  • TreesCharlotte’s mission is to help the City of Charlotte reach their goal of 50% tree canopy by 2050.  We therefore limit our efforts to expand the canopy within Charlotte’s city limits and limit participation to Charlotte residents only (unfortunately, we do not serve Matthews, Mint Hill, Pineville, Huntersville, Davidson, Cornelius, other municipalities outside Charlotte, or Mecklenburg County).
  • Proof of Charlotte residency (such as a driver’s license, utility bill, etc.) must be shown at the event in order to participate.
  • A valid email address is required to register.
  • You will complete and sign a Stewardship Pledge Form (mandatory) and declare your pledge to take care of the tree(s) we provide.
  • At the TreeStore, you will be taught how to properly plant and care for your tree(s).  Tree education is mandatory for everyone.
  • We cannot guarantee species type or quantities and will not know what will be available until the morning of the event.
  • Trees are in 7-gallon containers, range from 6-10′ tall, and will not be reserved or transported.

TreesCharlotte is a non-profit organization that relies on donations to be able to host events like this.  A suggested donation of $20 is greatly appreciated and would help us give more trees to Charlotte residents.

Registration is encouraged and will be open October 23 through November 5. Deadline to register is midnight, November 5 

Registration does not guarantee you trees or tree varieties, however, it does get you a sneak peak (via email a few days before the event) of the varieties we hope to offer.

We expect to give out close to 400 trees on a first come, first served basis. Expect long lines as this will be a popular event.

This event is supported by the Charlotte Regional Realtors Association and Coca-Cola Consolidated.

Registration now open

Volunteers are needed to help move and distribute trees and mulch into participants cars.  Register to volunteer below.

Volunteer registration for this event has closed. We hope you can join us at another event in the future.
