Earlier this week, we opened up registration for our first City-Wide TreeAdoption of the season. Within what seemed like a blink of an eye, the 590 trees we had to offer sold out. Charlotteans truly do love their trees. If you missed out, don’t worry, we have lots of TreeAdoption events throughout the planting season that are split up by Zip Code, giving you a better shot at securing the trees you need.
However, if you’re eager to get trees sooner or you live outside of Charlotte, we recommend stopping by a nursery or garden store and purchasing trees of your own. We understand that choosing a healthy, high-quality tree on our own can be daunting. After all, there is nothing worse than watching your new tree die just after planting because it was in bad shape to begin with. To help you out, we created a “Selecting Healthy Trees Guide”, so that you can be certain you’re choosing high-quality, healthy trees for your home.
The best way to ensure your new tree will survive planting is to make sure it is healthy during the time of purchase. We hope this guide can help you do just that. To get starting growing your canopy, one of our favorite local nurseries, Fast Growing Trees, will donate a portion of your tree purchase to TreesCharlotte. Check it out!
