Dilworth’s Share the Shade fundraisers are designed to improve the tree canopy throughout Dilworth and to give back to the larger Charlotte community by donating a portion of the money raised to a collaborative program created to help an inner city neighborhood, Revolution Park, protect and support their trees.


The Dilworth neighborhood has been losing its majestic tree canopy at a concerning rate because of development and storms, as well as the natural process of mature trees aging out. The Dilworth Community Association through their Tree Canopy Committee has organized fundraising efforts to add more trees to their streets. 


The fundraiser, called “Share the Shade”, has added almost 100 extra shade trees to the Dilworth neighborhood over the past 3 years thanks to our tree campaigns. In addition, a portion of what was raised worked toward equity by supporting the tree canopy of neighbors living in the nearby Revolution Park neighborhood with their tree maintenance lottery.


Thanks to the effort of so many supporting our Charlotte trees -  Tree Canopy Committee volunteers, Dilworth neighbors who donated over the years to the campaigns, the City of Charlotte’s Landscape Management arborists, and TreesCharlotte for their leadership on inner city tree issues - we are making a difference!

We welcome contributions to our tree efforts throughout the year. Please consider donating to Share the Shade and add even more trees to our neighborhood and at the same time help others with fewer funding resources with their tree canopy.
