Having completed a NeighborWoods Application and been accepted into the program, TreesCharlotte is pleased to be partnering with the Sanctuary 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 November.
The location of the event is yet to be determined and will be updated once it has been confirmed. The tree giveaway 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 during registration
Tree clinic: Every recipient must attend a tree-planting clinic the morning of the event (15 minutes) and sign a stewardship pledge.
Registration: Closes November 29. Registration is required. If you register, you are expected to pick up trees the morning of December 7 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.
TreeMasters are needed to help with the event.
