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. 

RESERVE YOUR TREES HERE

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.
