Zip Code TreeStore for 28217, 28273 and 28278

January 19 2019, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Steele Creek, are you ready for trees, trees and more trees? We invite residents who live in the 28217, 28273 and 28278 zip codes to our inaugural Zip Code TreeStore! This thriving southwest corner of the city has transformed from miles of farmland into the fastest-developing community in Charlotte. And that makes it the perfect spot for new trees. If you’re a resident of either zip code, pre-register today and help make Steele Creek one of the best-canopy’d communities in the Queen City. We plan to give out 200 trees.

  • Each address within zip code 28217, 28273 or 28278 is eligible for up to two free trees.  Limit 2 trees per address.
  • Proof of residency within zip code 28217, 28273 or 28278 (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 complete and 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.

Pre-registration is required and will open on January 9 and close on January 15.  Note: Pre-registration does not guarantee you trees or tree varieties.

We are in need of 10 TreeMasters to help move and distribute trees and mulch to participants.
