What is a TreeMaster?
A TreeMaster is a volunteer who has received training on volunteer management, proper planting techniques and care and maintenance of trees. TreeMasters serve as volunteer leaders and are vital to the success of NeighborWoods planting events throughout Charlotte.
What do TreeMasters do?
TreeMasters attend this free 2 1/2 hour workshop which features indoor and outdoor instruction, presentations, and hands-on demonstrations.

The TreesCharlotte planting season runs from October to roughly April 15.
