Urban Forestry

Green Business 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 to increasing our urban tree canopy.Tree Trust is the city's partner on the Urban Forestry Project.

Requests for the fall 2015 planing are still being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you are interested, fill out the Tree Survey.


Tree Trust will contact you. They will help you choose the best trees for your location. Tree Trust will place and plant the trees.  

To qualify, businesses or non-profits must:

  1. Have enough green space to accommodate a tree or trees.
  2. Maintain and water the trees (critical for the first three years).
