Trees Available to Local Businesses

To maintain Minneapolis’ wonderful urban forest, Minneapolis needs the help of local businesses to plant more trees. The City of Minneapolis offers a program to plant trees for qualifying businesses and nonprofits through the Health Department's Urban Forestry Project

A landscape professional will work with each business to select the best trees for the property and have them professionally installed including mulch and a watering bag for proper maintenance. We are asking businesses to contribute $30 per tree. (Quality trees with professional installation can cost businesses up to $250 per tree.) There is no limit on number of trees. These trees provide a great service to our city through reduced storm water runoff, lower energy use, and cleaner air for the communities where we live, work, and play. 


The trees are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Sign up by August 31st to be included in our Fall 2018 planting.  To qualify, the property must have enough space to accommodate a tree, and the owner must commit to maintaining and watering the tree.
