Mecklenburg County Outside CLT TreeAdoption

March 9 2024, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Mecklenburg County Outside CLT TreeAdoption (Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Matthews, Mint Hill, Pineville, Stallings)

March 9, 2024, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM

TreesCharlotte is excited to provide a TreeAdoption event for those living in Mecklenburg County! We invite residents living in Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Matthews, Mint Hill, Pineville, and Stallings to come on out and get some trees from TreesCharlotte! This TreeAdoption is for Mecklenburg County residents who reside outside of Charlotte city limits. We invite City of Charlotte residents to join our other seasonal TreeAdoptions within the city limits to adopt trees from us. 

Residents from the following municipalities are welcome to sign up:

  • Cornelius
  • Davidson
  • Huntersville
  • Matthews
  • Mint Hill
  • Pineville
  • Stallings

We’ll have a mix of species, from small flowering to canopy building to evergreen screening. There’s something for everybody. TreeAdoptions gives priority to those living in targeted areas in Mecklenburg County. Those residents are invited to early registration 2 weeks before the adoption.

A link to register for trees will be added here on Monday, February 26th
