Glorious Autumn Regional TreeStore – Ballantyne

November 3, 2018, 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Are you a resident of Charlotte?  Do you need some trees for your yard? TreesCharlotte, with generous support from Alliance for Community Trees, Arbor Day Foundation and CSX Transportation, is bringing its Regional TreeStore to Ballantyne.

  • Each Charlotte household is eligible for up to two free trees.
  • 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 trained on how to properly plant and care for your tree(s).  Tree training is mandatory.
  • 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 $10 per tree is greatly appreciated and would help us give more trees to Charlotte residents.

Get through the line quicker by pre-registering in advance!  (Note: Pre-registering does not guarantee you trees or tree varieties; it simply allows you to bypass the paperwork line and get through the process faster) 
Tree registration will open on October 15.  Pre-registration is limited to the first 250 participants.  Deadline to register is October 30
