The City of Charlotte is asking citizens to help control the cankerworm population by banding trees in their communities. Through the City of Charlotte’s Neighborhood Matching Grants Program, neighborhood based organizations can apply for up to $3,000 to assist with banding trees in their community, including those located on private property.
There is NO income eligibility to apply for a Tree Banding Neighborhood Matching Grant. Tree banding projects can run concurrently with other open Neighborhood Matching Grant projects.
Required Pre-application Workshop:
Neighborhoods interested in participating in the Tree Banding Program must attend a pre-application workshop. Two workshops will be available on the following dates:
- Tuesday, July 26 at 6:00 p.m. - Landscape Management Building at 701 Tuckaseegee Road
- Wednesday, August 3 at 6:00 p.m. - Landscape Management Building at 701 Tuckaseegee Road
Note: Visitor parking at the Landscape Management facility is available at the entrance of the building.
