DLCA Tree Banding
Cankerworm season is approaching. Once again, the City of Charlotte is offering eligible neighborhoods a grant to assist with the costs of tree banding. Davis Lake Community Association submitted a grant application and it has been approved.
One of the major requirements of the grant is that neighborhoods obtain at least a 50% match in the form of volunteer hours. Therefore, we are asking residents to volunteer to help install and/or remove tree banding in our neighborhood. Trees are typically banded around Thanksgiving just after most of the leaves have fallen and are maintained until around April 15th. We will band trees in certain common areas throughout the neighborhood. While supplies last, residents may also band trees on their personal property using supplies purchased with grant funds. If you know any students in need of volunteer hours, this may be a good opportunity for them.
Exact dates for tree banding will be communicated later and reminders will be sent via Davis Lake email blasts, so please be on the lookout for those communications. If you have any questions, please email Samantha Mwangi at firstname.lastname@example.org .
