About

We will be hosting our TreeMaster classroom course on the evening of Wednesday, January 24th. Anyone is welcome to join in if they are interested in becoming one of our amazing lead volunteers. TreeMaster class 5:30pm-6:30pm and TreeKeeper class 6:30pm-7:30pm.

For any TreeMasters who would like to train as a TreeKeeper, we invite you to join us from 6:30pm - 7:30pm (directly following the TreeMaster training) for the TreeKeeper classroom training session.

A TreeMaster is a volunteer who has received training on volunteer management, proper planting techniques and care and maintenance of trees. TreeMasters serve as volunteer leaders at our planting events and TreeAdoptions throughout Charlotte.  They help with event setup, tree and mulch placement, volunteer engagement, and event breakdown. TreeKeepers join us on at our TreeCare events to help steward previously planted trees by providing pruning, mulching, stake removal, and other general tree care. TreeKeepers may come to an event with volunteers or they may join our arborist on a site visit to conduct light pruning. 

How do I become a TreeMaster  or TreeKeeper?

Anybody interested should attend this workshop, featuring the history of TreesCharlotte, our planting practices, and a Q&A.  Training is suited for all levels of arboriculture knowledge.  Upon completion of the certification course, graduates will be provided opportunities to put their knowledge into action by serving as volunteer leaders. The tree planting and care season in Charlotte runs from October to early April. 

TreeMaster Training Planting

Following the training, graduates will be provided an opportunity to get hands-on experience with a tree planting on the morning of Saturday, January 27th. This add-on training session is not required but strongly encouraged. For those who cannot make this planting, we will have you pair up with a seasoned TreeMaster during your first planting with us to receive additional field training.

TreeKeeper Field Training

TreeKeeper classroom graduates will be provided with an opportunity to get hands-on experience with a tree care event on the morning of Thursday, January 25th. This add-on training session is not required but strongly encouraged. For those who cannot make the this tree care field training event, we will have you pair up with a seasoned TreeKeeper during your first tree care event with us to receive additional training. 

What is the time commitment?

TreeMasters and TreeKeepers are asked to commit to volunteer at a minimum of 3 regularly scheduled tree planting/adoption events annually (each about 5 hours).
