Our president, John Petrone, was named to the Board of Directors of TreesCharlotte, a local non-profit organization committed to maintaining and expanding the natural tree canopy of Charlotte. TreesCharlotte partners with neighborhoods and schools throughout the city for planting events from October through April.
As a member of the 19-seat board, John will accompany his colleagues in providing strategic oversight and counsel for the overall efforts of TreesCharlotte. In this capacity, the Board serves as fiduciary for TreesCharlotte by raising private capital, establishing contracts with partnering non-profits, and supporting efforts to coordinate volunteer plantings, public education initiatives and general awareness campaigns, as well as guiding the work of the Executive Director.
Stay tuned for how SouthWood and our clients plan to make an impact on our local canopy through TreesCharlotte!
