University City Zip Code TreeStore 2020 – 28213, 28262, 28269

February 22, 2020, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

University City, are you ready for some trees?! Thanks to our partnership with LendingTreeCharlotte 2020 Host Committee and 2020 Convention Planners, we are excited to bring our TreeStore to University City.  In an effort to get more trees into less treed areas, we invite residents who live in the 28213, 28262, or 28269 zip codes to this Zip Code TreeStore! If you’re a resident of any of these zip codes, pre-register and help make University City one of the best-canopy’d communities in the Queen City.

Here’s what you need to know: 

  • Each address within zip code 28213, 28262, or 28269 is eligible for up to two free trees.  Limit 2 trees per address.
  • Proof of zip code residency (such as a driver’s license, utility bill, etc.) must be shown at the event in order to participate.
  • A valid email address is required to register.
  • You will sign a Stewardship Pledge Form (mandatory) and declare your pledge to take care of the tree(s) we provide.
  • At the TreeStore, you will be taught how to properly plant and care for your tree(s).  Tree training is mandatory.
  • We cannot guarantee species type or quantities and will not know what will be available until the morning of the event.
  • Trees are in 7-gallon containers, range from 6-10′ tall, and will not be reserved or transported.

TreesCharlotte is a non-profit organization that relies on donations to be able to host events like this.  A suggested donation of $20 is greatly appreciated and would help us give more trees to Charlotte residents.

Registration is required and will be open February 4 – 18. Deadline to register is midnight, February 18. 

Register here!

Registration does not guarantee you trees or tree varieties, however, it does get you a sneak peek (via email a few days before the event) of the varieties we hope to offer.

We expect to give out close to 300 trees on a first come, first served basis. Expect long lines as this will be a popular event.

Thank you to all our TreeMasters that have registered, we now have enough help and are only seeking a few volunteers to help direct traffic across the campus and distribute and load trees and mulch into participants’ cars.  Register to volunteer below. Deadline to register to volunteer is Feb. 16.
