Tree Initiative – Fall 2020

In recent years, your Myers Park Homeowners Association has spent increasing time and resources in planting trees and working to preserve our tree canopy, in conjunction with city partners. However, because 90% of our tree canopy is on private property, we want to EXPAND OUR EFFORTS.

In partnership with the City of Charlotte, we have developed a NEW program in which MPHA members can purchase A grade quality trees from nurseries at the same cost negotiated by the City. We have focused on select oak trees, to be consistent with John Nolen’s original neighborhood plan. At this time, the City’s key nurseries have a good selection of Willow Oaks, White Oaks, Red Oaks and Live Oaks. We have options in 15 and 25 gallon containers as well as ball and burlap (B&B). Trees are measured by caliper and a 2” caliper tree is approximately 8-9’ tall. B&B trees are preferred by the city and tend to transplant better, but both are good options. B&B trees require professional installation and we will be able to take advantage of the City’s installation cost for B&B trees as well.

Cost:
15 Gallon Tree – $80.00
25 Gallon Tree – $125.00
B&B Tree – $490.00 (Tree cost of $140 plus installation of $350).

Species:
Willow Oak, White Oak, Red Oak, Live Oak

Delivery / Installation expected in early December.

You can purchase your tree on line (preferred method) or by printing a paper copy of our order form and submitting that with your check made payable to:

MPHA
P.O. Box 12733
Charlotte, NC 28220-2733

Alternatively, orders may be placed using a paper copy of the order form.

At this time, we ask that you are a current member of the MPHA to participate in this program. If you are not – it is quick and easy to join.

Consider making a family memory by adding to our tree canopy. If you have lost trees due to disease, renovation, etc. now is a great time to replace trees on your property.
