West Side Zip Code TreeStore

October 26 2019, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Thanks to the generous support of Coca-Cola Consolidated, we invite residents who live in the 28208, 28214 and 28216 zip codes to our West Side Zip Code TreeStore! If you’re a resident of any of these zip codes, pre-register and help make the West Side one of the best-canopy’d communities in the Queen City. We plan to give out 400 trees on a first come first served basis.

  • Each address within zip code 28208, 28214 and 28216 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 encouraged and will be open October 9 through October 22.  Deadline to register is midnight, October 22.

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 400 trees on a first come, first served basis.  Expect long lines as this will be a poplar event.
Registration will open October 9
We’re recruiting TreeMasters to help move and distribute trees and mulch to participants.

Sign-ups for this event are limited to TreeMasters.
