Trees for Minneapolis businesses

To maintain Minneapolis’ wonderful urban forest, we need the help of private property owners and 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 $25 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 April 30 to be included in our spring 2017 planting. Businesses and commercial property owners may apply here to reserve their trees for 2017. To qualify, the property must have enough space to accommodate a tree, and the owner must commit to maintaining and watering the tree.

Over 250 businesses have already taken advantage of the program. For more information contact EnvironmentalServicesInfo@minneapolismn.gov or visit the Minneapolis Urban Forestry Project webpage.
