Minneapolis Urban Forestry Project

About

Urban Forestry wordmark

Through the Urban Forestry Project, Minneapolis businesses and non-profit organizations are eligible to have trees planted on their properties. Planting trees on commercial properties is essential for reducing energy costs, better managing storm water, reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide, and increasing livability in our city.

Requests for 2017 spring and fall plantings are being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Trees cost $25 each.

The project provides a consultation with a landscaper about the best trees for your property.

Trees are professionally planted, mulched, and include watering bags to assist you in caring for the trees.

If you are interested, fill out the Tree Survey.

To qualify, businesses or non-profits must:

  1. Have enough green space to accommodate a tree or trees.

    The Minneapolis Urban Forestry Project planted 25 juniper trees at a child care center in fall 2015.

  2. Maintain and water the trees (critical for the first three years).
