TreesCharlotte is the non-profit partner of the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, tasked with growing the city's tree canopy to 50% by the year 2050. They coordinate tree planting events on private property, engage volunteers for planting events, and partner with local contractors and corporate donors to support their work.
Selling Community-Based Carbon Credits directly supports their mission of helping the city of Charlotte reach a 50% canopy goal. This funding helps TreesCharlotte purchase more trees, perform annual tree inventories, and match other donations.
TreesCharlotte was created as a public-private collaboration in 2012 dedicated to planting trees, primarily through volunteer efforts. They also educate Charlotte's residents on the importance of the tree canopy and ways to plant and preserve urban trees. Through a combination of full-time staff, their dedicated and ever-growing community of volunteers, and partnerships with contractors and corporate sponsors, TreesCharlotte is committed to maintaining and expanding the natural tree canopy of the great city of Charlotte.
