Can you volunteer with Catawba Lands Conservancy to lead other volunteers at tree planting events around Charlotte? If so, we’re looking for you. Join us to become a trained TreeMaster on Sept. 26 and Oct. 2 (see details below for dates and times).
What is a TreeMaster?
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 and are vital to the success of NeighborWoods planting events throughout Charlotte, including TreeDays and TreeStores.
What do TreeMasters do?
TreeMasters are required to attend a free 2 hour workshop that features indoor and outdoor instruction, presentations, and hands-on demonstrations. Training is suited for all levels of arboriculture knowledge. Upon completion of the certification program, graduates will be provided opportunities to put their knowledge into action by serving as volunteer leaders at planting events. The TreesCharlotte planting season runs from October to roughly April 15.
What are the benefits of becoming a TreeMaster?
In addition to the satisfaction of planting trees, volunteering for a great cause, improving air quality, and making a difference in our tree canopy, TreeMasters receive a TreesCharlotte baseball cap and a tree at each event at which they volunteer.
