Steele Creek Zipcode TreeAdoption – 28217, 28273, 28278

February 5 2022, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

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! 

Thanks to the generosity of Bank of America, TreesCharlotte is excited to bring our Zip Code TreeAdoption event to the Steele Creek area.  We invite residents living in zip codes 28217,  28273, and 28278 to come on out and get some trees at the Steele Creek Athletic Association. To ensure the event runs smoothly please read the details below carefully. 

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR TREES

Here’s what you need to know: 

  • Registration is required and opens at 10 am Tuesday, February 1st.  (link will be posted above on 2/01) and closes when we “sell-out” of trees or at 11:59 pm Thursday, February 3rd. 
  • Each address within the city of Charlotte zip codes 28217, 28273, and 28278 can get up to 2 trees. While the registration form does not limit the total number of trees, households requesting more than 2 trees will be notified and removed.
  • A valid email address is required to register.
  • Please allow for at least 45 minutes to receive your trees as everyone is required to go through a planting demonstration. 
  • We are continuing to implement staggered pickup times. On the registration form, you will choose a time frame to pick up your trees. 
  • At the TreeAdoption, you will be taught how to properly plant and care for your tree(s).  Tree training is mandatory.
  • 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 and watering instructions.  Tree planting is not provided.
