First Timers University City Zipcode TreeAdoption: 28213, 28262, 28269

November 13, 2021, 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM

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. We are hosting a First-Timers TreeAdoption, thanks to the support of Trammell Crow Residential, the multifamily development company of Dallas-based Crow Holdings,  simultaneously with the University City Zipcode TreeAdoption at Back Creek Church, 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.

  • 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 – 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. If interested please click HERE
