Caring for our Trees Together

Charlotte takes pride in having one of the most expansive tree canopies in the country. We couldn't achieve this without the hard work of Charlotte residents like you! In order to celebrate the rich biodiversity found in our urban forests, educate the public on how to take action to maintain our canopy, and protect our forest for years to come, Landscape Management and Housing & Neighborhood services are proud to present this year's Tree Care Grant. This is a fantastic first step in ensuring our city's canopy remains vibrant for years to come.   


Eligible organizations citywide can apply for matching grants of up to $3,000 for tree care initiatives including canopy assessment, ivy removal, small tree/ sapling pruning, and tree focused education and community events.


Applications are accepted once per year. Tree Care projects may run concurrently with open Neighborhood Matching Grant projects. 


The current application deadline has passed. Please check this page again in August 2022 for more information on the upcoming grant cycle!
