Protecting Trees Where We Live, Work, and Play

The NC Bradford Pear Bounty Program is new to North Carolina.  The North Carolina Urban Forest Council created it in 2022 in partnership with NCSU Cooperative Extension, North Carolina Wildlife Federation, and North Carolina Forest Service.  

The goal of this program is to reduce the number of invasive Bradford Pear trees found across North Carolina by swapping them for non-invasive, native trees that benefit wildlife.   

There are four tree swap events in 2023:  

18 March in Wake Forest

22 April in Newton (Catawba County)

28 October in Sanford

TBD in Wilmington

Click here to register.  Any North Carolina homeowner can participate, even if they do not live in the community hosting the event.  Every year new communities are selected to host a NC Bradford Pear Bounty event.
