Tree Care

The Alliance for Cape Fear Trees plants a lot of trees. In our brief 8 year history, we've planted or helped plant nearly 3,000 trees. Just this past fall/winter, we planted 225 trees. We plant with the much-appreciated assistance from the City of Wilmington

We need your help in taking care of these trees. There are a few ways you can help.

  • If you think a tree needs attention, fill out the 'Tree Report' form (on this page). It might be that it's damaged, leaning, distressed... If the tree has a tag, note the Tree ID # and we'll know exactly which one you're talking about. If it doesn't, note the nearest address, and if we can't figure it out, we'll contact you.

  • If you live near a tree and would like to take care of it, you can become a "Tree Keeper" and adopt that tree.

  • If you really love trees and want to learn more about them, you can join our  "Tree Steward" Program where we train you to plant, prune, stake, mulch, water, and otherwise do everything to make a tree successul. We offer one to two courses a year. 

If you are interested in a free tree, visit our Tree me! page and request a tree. We plant trees from November to February. Tell us your address and we'll add it to the list for the next planting season.

If it's easier, you can also email us at
