Weeping Willow TreeStore

January 16 2021, 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Excitement for this TreeStore has been Tree-mendous and we are now “sold out” of trees.
 

We have a unique opportunity for you, tree fans: A Weeping Willow TreeStore!

Thanks to our new partner in Fort Mill, Fast-Growing Trees, we have nearly 200 Weeping Willows to give away. These trees are beloved for their graceful cascades and hardiness in moist areas and would make a beautiful addition to any medium to large yard.

Unlike most of our TreeStores, this event is open to all tree fans – not just Charlotteans – from 9:30-11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 16, at Fast-Growing Trees HQ, 2621 Old Nation Road in Fort Mill, SC 29715.

Here’s what you need to know: 

  • You must pre-register. Registration opens at 10 am Monday, December 28th  (link will be below) and closes when we “sell out” of trees or at 11:59 pm on Jan. 14th.  
  • Each address from anywhere can get up to 3 trees at $10 each!
  • 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.
  • 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. 
  • About the trees: The trees are in 7-gallon containers, measure 10-12 feet tall, and weigh about 10-15 pounds. A link to more information about the Weeping Willow is below. 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.  Donations 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. Be sure to research if this tree will work well for your yard before registering.
