NC Bradford Pear Bounty Tree Exchange

November 4, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

A brown tree on top with a green bloom on bottom, with the words "Remove" by the tree and "Replace" by the bloom. This is the logo for the NC Bradford Pear Bounty, which is says across the middle, and lists sponsors as NC Urban Forest Council, NC Wildlife Federation, NC State Extension, and NC Forest Service.

The Bradford Bounty  Exchange is a collaborate effort between the NC Urban Forest Council, NC State Extension, NC Forest Service and NC Wildlife Federation that aims to reduce the amount of invasive Bradford pear trees in North Carolina and expand native tree canopy. Participants who cut down Bradford pear trees on their property may register to pick up to five native trees of their choice at the Bradford Bounty Exchange event.

The exchange is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required to ensure tree pick-up runs smoothly. Before and after pictures of the Bradford Pear trees you cut down must be shown to organizers at the pick-up to receive replacement trees.

A total of 200 native trees will be available on a first come, first served basis in three-gallon pots, while supplies last. Some examples of native trees that have been distributed in the past include redbud, serviceberry, black cherry and white oak. Please note that this program is geared toward homeowners/landowners. Trees should never be removed from property without the owner’s permission.
