Treesilience Initiative

Building Community through Trees

Introducing Treesilience, an initiative by TreesCharlotte dedicated to advancing environmental justice through the lens of tree equity. Our mission is to safeguard and enrich the green spaces of Charlotte’s under-canopied and underserved neighborhoods, fostering a sense of community through the power of trees. Participation in Treesilience comes at no cost to our target community members. We rely on the support of grant funding and corporate partners to fund this initiative.

Currently, we are engaged with three Charlotte neighborhoods (Ramblewood, McCrorey Heights, & Greenville) that have a low median income and are “under-canopied” – those with a tree canopy covering 40% tree canopy or less. The City of Charlotte boasts a tree canopy of approximately 47%, making these neighborhoods much lower than the average. As a part of our commitment to these neighborhoods, Treesilience is a comprehensive model that spans three years

Treesilience goes beyond trees – it is a commitment to environmental justice through the prism of tree equity.
