Charlotte once earned the designation of “Tree City USA” – but we have lost a significant part of our canopy to development in the last 10 years. The city is working on saving trees as part of its comprehensive plant, but a local organization has been at it for a while. Trees Charlotte is a public/private nonprofit whose mission it is to grow and diversify the city’s tree canopy through education and TONS of planting projects.
And when we say education – we mean it. Not only does Trees Charlotte give away trees, they make sure you know how to take care of them! We’re excited to have their educator here with us today on the BrandBuilders Podcast. Kate Bolkin came to Trees Charlotte all the way from Madison Wisconsin to help keep the Queen City green.
