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 as the City of Trees, we are continuing our efforts to partner with the community to inventory trees. The next City of Charlotte Tree by Tree volunteer tree inventory will take place on May 20 from 10 a.m. to noon.
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 north 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!
Please wear study, comfortable shoes and bring sunscreen and a hat. Bottled water and snacks will be provided.
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.
Space is limited, so RSVP today! A waiting list will be made available once slots are filled. Registration closes at 5 p.m. on May 18.
