First Timers Steele Creek Zipcode TreeAdoption – 28217, 28273, 28278

February 5, 2022, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

We’re excited to go back to our normal event format, which includes an in-person planting demonstration and tree education, a core mission of TreesCharlotte! 

Whether you’re new to Charlotte or new to TreesCharlotte, we have a special invitation just for you. Thanks to the generosity of Bank of America, we are hosting a First-Timers TreeAdoption simultaneously with the Steele Creek Zipcode TreeAdoption at the Steele Creek Athletic Association, where we’re giving away 100 trees to Charlotte residents who’ve never participated in our TreeAdoptions 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 runs smoothly please read the details below carefully:

Here’s what you need to know: 

  • Registration is required and opens at 10 am Monday, January 31st.  (link will be posted above on 1/31) and closes when we “sell-out” of trees or at 12:01 am Tuesday, February 1st. 
  • Each address within the city of Charlotte zip codes 28217, 28273, and 28278 can get up to 2 trees. While the registration form does not limit the total number of trees, households requesting more than 2 trees will be notified and removed.
  • A valid email address is required to register.
  • Please allow for at least 45 minutes to receive your trees as everyone is required to go through a planting demonstration. 
  • We are continuing to implement staggered pickup times. On the registration form, you will choose a time frame to pick up your trees. 
  • At the TreeAdoption, you will be taught how to properly plant and care for your tree(s).  Tree training is mandatory.
  • About the trees: The trees are in 7-gallon containers, measure 6-10 feet tall, and weigh about 10-15 pounds. The mulch weighs 25 pounds/bag. Links to the species we are offering are 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 and watering instructions.  Tree planting is not provided.
