Who We Are

Keeping Charlotte The City of Trees

In 2012, TreesCharlotte was created as a public/private collaboration dedicated to planting trees, primarily through volunteer efforts with a focus on underserved communities. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, TreesCharlotte also educates Charlotte’s residents on the importance of the canopy and ways to plant and preserve trees.


To date, TreesCharlotte has planted or given away 40,000 containerized trees and an additional 36,008 reforestation seedlings, engaged 20,000-plus volunteers, educated thousands of students and residents on tree care and tree benefits, and held numerous stewardship events to care for trees already planted.
