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, we've expanded the range of opportunities available through the Tree Care Initiative grant. 


Eligible organizations citywide can apply for matching grants of up to $3,000 for tree care initiatives including canopy assessment, ivy removal, emerald ash borer treatment, 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 application for the 2020 tree care grant is closed. Please visit this page in late summer 2021 for information about the next grant cycle!
