Creek ReLeaf Program
Volunteers planting trees   
Plant a tree!


Through Creek ReLeaf, trees are planted in riparian areas (floodplains and stream buffers) of Mecklenburg County.

The 2013 Creek ReLeaf event took place on November 23. A big thanks to our 664 volunteers who planted 1800 trees along Irwin Creek in west Charlotte. This was our largest volunteer turnout to date. 

The next planting will be held Saturday, November 22, 2014. More details to come.


Creek ReLeaf is a collaborative effort of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services, the Charlotte Public Tree Fund, the Center for Sustainability at Central Piedmont Community College, the Sierra Club-Central Piedmont Group, dedicated volunteers and financial supporters. 

Since 2008, volunteers have planted nearly 13,000 tree seedlings in Charlotte-Mecklenburg's Briar Creek, Irwin Creek, Little Sugar Creek and McDowell Creek watersheds
