Become A Tree Keeper!


The Alliance for Cape Fear Trees needs volunteers who could adopt at least two recently planted trees during the summer season drought to water once a week, if there is no rain. The trees prefer 5 gallons of water once a week rather than smaller amounts more frequently. Volunteers will need to provide their own water for their trees. For a list of locations and to sign up

Preserving, protecting and planting trees in Greater Wilmington and the lower Cape Fear region
