NeighborWoods Tree Canopy Program

NeighborWoods, a collaboration between the City of Charlotte and TreesCharlotte , is a community tree planting initiative aimed at keeping the tree canopy healthy and beautiful while achieving Charlotte's goal of a 50 percent tree canopy coverage by 2050. Neighborhoods interested in planting trees in their community can apply to participate in this program in the spring of each year.  Selected neighborhoods receive trees and planting supplies, and receive tree planting and care training. Neighborhood residents work together to plant trees in individual yards and common areas.

Why trees? A healthy tree canopy:
  • Provides energy savings
  • Contributes to clean air and water
  • Enhances property values
  • Creates a sense of community
  • Provides wildlife habitat
  • Reduces noise
  • Improves neighborhood quality of life
