Having completed a NeighborWoods Application and been accepted into the program, TreesCharlotte is pleased to be partnering with the Regency at Palisades neighborhood to plant trees in their common areas and to provide trees to their residents. Residents are invited to enjoy coffee and donuts, talk to tree experts about the right trees for their yard, take a 15-minute tree-planting clinic and bring home up to 3 trees!
Pre-registration for trees is required and will be made available in October.
The tree give away portion of the day will run from 9:00-10:30.
The trees: Tentative species list is yet to be determined. Once confirmed, a list of species will be emailed to registrants. (Trees are a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved in advance)
Tree specs: 5-10 feet tall, 1-inch caliper, aged 2-4 years old, potted in 7-gallon containers. Trees would retail for $75-$150.
Your cost: $10 per tree, paid in advance during registration
Tree clinic: Every recipient will attend a tree-planting clinic the morning of the event (15 minutes) and sign a stewardship pledge.
Registration: Closes November 7. Registration is required. If you register, please make every effort to pick up trees the morning of November 16 or arrange for somebody to pick them up for you. Registration does not guarantee species; all trees are first-come, first-served the morning of the event.
Volunteers and TreeMasters are needed to help plant trees for residents unable to do so and to help with tree and mulch distribution. The tree planting portion of this event will be from 9:30am-noon.
To ensure a safe and enjoyable event, we are limiting the number of volunteers to 30 for this TreeDay. Register early as our events “sell out” quickly. 1 spot remains
Tree planting events are great for families and everyone is welcome. To ensure accurate active volunteer counts, please list all participants on the registration form, along with children’s ages. Children 16 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
Deadline to register to volunteer is November 10.
Once registered, more detailed information will be emailed to you the week of the event.
