Charlotte is known for its lush urban tree canopy that covers nearly 46% of the city. In fact, it's recognized as one of the best urban forests in the nation. To help protect and preserve Charlotte's beautiful tree canopy, we are partnering with Sustain Charlotte to conduct a tree inventory on Saturday, October 7 from 10 a.m. to noon.
Sustain Charlotte is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that helps to advance local sustainability through smart growth. Their dedicated staff and volunteers work collaboratively with residents, neighborhood organizations, government agencies, nonprofits and businesses to solve the most important challenges to the long-term social, economic and environmental health of our community. We believe trees are an irreplaceable resource to all communities.
We need your help! We are looking for a group of volunteers to be part of a tree inventory program to maintain the vibrant forest that has crowned Charlotte the "City of Trees."
As a group of volunteers, you will walk through a neighborhood in southwest Charlotte and add trees to the Tree by Tree map. If you aren't sure what that means, visit Tree by Tree and watch the videos to learn more. Don't worry: the City of Charlotte Landscape Management's expert staff will be there to help on inventory day!
If you are passionate about our city's tree conservation, NOW is your chance to ensure our trees stay beautiful and thriving for future generations. Please wear sturdy shoes and bring sunscreen and a hat. Bottled water and snacks will be provided.
Space is limited, so register today!
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Friday, Oct. 6 @ noon
LIABILITY WAIVER: You'll be asked to fill out a liability waiver and bring it with you to the event. The form is located on the signup.
