University City Zip Code TreeStore – 28213, 28262, 28269

October 17, 2020

TreesCharlotte is excited to partner with Back Creek Church to not only plant trees around their campus but also to host a Zip Code TreeStore to give out trees to residents living in 28213, 28262 or 28269.  If you live in one of these zip codes, 28213, 28262, or 28269, we invite you to come out and get some trees for your yard.

To ensure the event follows social distancing guidelines, details are different from our typical TreeStores, so read carefully:

Here’s what you need to know: 

  • You must pre-register. Registration opens 10am Fri, Oct 9 (link below available species) and closes at 11:59pm Tues, Oct 13.  
  • Each address within zip code 28213, 28262 or 28269 can get up to 2 trees TOTAL. 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.
  • The event will be drive-thru only to limit personal contact. You will be expected to load your own trees and mulch. Neighbors are encouraged to work together to pick up multiple orders with one vehicle.
  • To respect guidelines around large gatherings and to limit the number of registrants on-site at any one time, we are implementing staggered pick up times.  On the registration form, you will choose a time-frame to pick up your trees (FULL10-10:45am or 10:45-11:30am). 
  • About the trees: The trees are in 7-gallon containers, measure 6-15 feet tall and weigh about 20-25 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 – watering instructions and specific information about the species you select.

TreesCharlotte is a non-profit organization that relies on donations to be able to host events like this.  Donation are greatly appreciated and help us give more trees to Charlotte residents.

You’ll be able to choose from the following trees when you register (registration link below opens at 10am Oct 9). Be sure to research which tree will work best for your yard before registering. Community Tree Educator Kate has created an Ask the Arborist on Zoom to guide you through the species. 

Quantities are limited. Register early to ensure the best selection. Selections are final and once registered, cannot be changed.  

Registration will open Oct 9

We’re looking for 8 TreeMasters to help with traffic, check-in and moving trees.  Interested in becoming a TreeMaster? Find details here.
