This is TreesCharlotte's biggest tree giveaway of the year. As we wind up our planting season, we will give away 800-1,000 trees, ranging from our canopy giants (oaks, maples) to evergreens to flowering trees. Proof of Charlotte residency (license, water bill, etc.) will get you two free trees and two bags of mulch. Every recipient must attend a tree-planting clinic and sign a stewardship pledge. New this year: Get through the line faster by pre-registering online; registration opens 3 weeks before the store. Pre-registering does NOT guarantee you trees, but will help you get through the line faster.
