Whether you’re new to Charlotte or new to TreesCharlotte, we have a special invitation just for you. On March 26, we are hosting our First-Timers TreeStore, where we’re giving away 100 free trees to Charlotte residents who’ve never shopped our stores before! If you’re a TreesCharlotte first-timer, you can take home up to two FREE trees! What a terrific way to get started on what promises to be a wonderful tree journey in the Queen City.
To ensure the event follows social distancing guidelines, some details are different from our typical TreeStores, so read carefully:
Here’s what you need to know:
- You must pre-register, as no drive-ups will be allowed. Registration opens 10 am Mon, March 15 and closes when we “sell out” of trees or at 11:59 pm Wed, March 17.
- New participants only. Each Charlotte address/household can get up to 2 trees. While the registration form does not limit the total number of trees, households requesting more than 2 trees or those having already received trees from us will be notified and removed.
- TreesCharlotte’s mission is to help the City of Charlotte reach its goal of 50% tree canopy by 2050. We, therefore, limit participation to residents within Charlotte city limits. At this time, we do not serve Matthews, Mint Hill, Pineville, Huntersville, Davidson, Cornelius, Mecklenburg County, or other municipalities outside Charlotte.
- The event will be drive-thru only to limit personal contact. You will be expected to load your own trees and mulch.
- About the trees: The trees are in 3, 5 and 7-gallon containers, measure 4-15 feet tall, and weigh about 20-25 pounds. The mulch weighs 25 pounds/bag. Links to the species we are offering will be provided below. Please do your homework first to ensure you’re putting the right tree in the right place. Once registered, selections are final and cannot be changed.
- TreesCharlotte will send a follow-up email with planting instructions – including a planting video – watering instructions and specific information about the species you select.
TreesCharlotte is a non-profit organization that relies on donations to be able to host events like this. Donations are greatly appreciated and help us give more trees to Charlotte residents.
Once determined, a list of trees that will be available will be listed below, along with the registration link.
Quantities are limited. Register early to ensure the best selection. Selections are final and once registered, cannot be changed.
Sign-ups for this event are limited to TreeMasters.
