The Grove Zip Code TreeStore – 28205, 28212, 28215, 28227

March 7 2020, 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Hickory Grove, are you ready for some trees?! Thanks to our partnership with LendingTreeCharlotte 2020 Host Committee and 2020 Convention Planners, we are excited to bring our TreeStore to Hickory Grove. We invite residents who live in the 28205, 28212, 28215 or Charlotte only residents of 28227 zip codes to this Zip Code TreeStore! If you’re a resident of any of these zip codes, pre-register and help make Hickory Grove one of the best-canopy’d communities in the Queen City. Thanks to the generosity of the Charlotte 2020 Host Committee, we plan to give out 200 trees on a first-come first-served basis.

Here’s what you need to know: 

  • Each Charlotte address within zip code 28205, 28212, 28215 or 28227 (only Charlotte addresses in 28227, not Matthews or Mint Hill) is eligible for up to two free trees.  Limit 2 trees per address.  Registrations listing a PO Box or an apartment are not valid and will be deleted.
  • TreesCharlotte’s mission is to help the City of Charlotte reach its 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 zip code 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 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 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 $20 is greatly appreciated and would help us give more trees to Charlotte residents.

Registration is required and will be open February 19 – March 3. Deadline to register is midnight, March 3. 

Walk-ups are welcome.

Walk-ups Welcome, pre-registration has closed.

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

We expect to give out close to 300 trees on a first-come, first-served basis. Expect long lines as this will be a popular event.

Volunteers are needed to distribute and load trees and mulch into participants’ cars.  Register to volunteer below.  Deadline to register is March 1.
