The City of Charlotte is asking citizens to help control the cankerworm population by banding trees in their communities. Please scroll to the bottom of the page for a link to learn more about how to band your trees.
Through the City of Charlotte’s Neighborhood Matching Grant Program
, neighborhood 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 receive a Tree Banding Program Neighborhood Matching Grant.
Grant applications will be accepted through September 1, 2015. 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. This workshop was held on July 15th. Contact Denise Coleman at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about participating in the program this year.
Important 2015 Program Update:
Due to this year's limited supply of the Tanglefoot Insect Barrier product, if a neighborhood association purchases Tanglefoot between June 1st and the date of the grant contract signing expected to occur in September 2015, the neighborhood will be eligible for reimbursement for the purchase of the Tanglefoot contingent upon the subsequent approval of the neighborhood's grant application. All other supplies must be purchased after contract signing as required by the Program Guidelines. Neighborhoods making Tanglefoot purchases prior to grant application approval do so at their own risk. If the grant application is not approved for any reason the Tanglefoot and any other expenses incurred by the neighborhood will not be eligible for reimbursement. This exception applies only to Tanglefoot Insect Barrier product purchases for the September 1, 2015 Tree Banding Grant cycle and does not apply to other Neighborhood Matching Grants.
