About TreeAdoptions

  • Two trees per address.
  • Registration will be required and will open online 5-7 days before the event. While you will be able to pre-select your species, we cannot guarantee species type or quantities on the day of the event. We will, however, make all efforts to sub in a comparable tree. 
  • Plan for at least 45 minutes to receive your trees as everyone will be required to go through a planting demonstration. Tree education is mandatory for everyone. Charlotteans who have never received a tree from TreesCharlotte in the past will be invited to take advantage of our First Timers registration. Those details will roll out with each Adoption Event.
  • At this time our focus is within the Charlotte city limits. Therefore, we currently limit our participation to Charlotte residents only (unfortunately, we do not serve Matthews, Mint Hill, Pineville, Huntersville, Davidson, Cornelius, other municipalities outside Charlotte, or Mecklenburg County).
  • You will complete and sign a Stewardship Pledge Form and declare your pledge to take care of the tree(s) we provide.
  • Trees are in 3-, 5- or 7-gallon containers, ranging from 6-10′ tall.
  • While we’re excited to return to our in-person, full-contact events, we will adapt to prevailing Covid precautions.
