City Trees Program

2017 Program Details

City Trees Image The City of Minneapolis is once again working with Tree Trust (a local non profit organization) to  provide about 1,000  trees to Minneapolis property owners at the cost of only $25. 

Due to such popular demand in years past, this year the City  Tree program will be administered by lottery. 

How does the program work?

General Program Information

Plant a tree. Healthy trees look beautiful in your neighborhood, increase property values, help clean the air you breathe, absorb carbon dioxide, save on your energy bills with strategic planting, keep the city cooler in the summer, provide homes for wildlife and help manage stormwater. 

Since 2006, the City of Minneapolis has funded the City Trees program, a low-cost way to help build the city's tree canopy. Trees are available for Minneapolis residents, businesses, and nonprofits.

The City Trees program has planted more than 10,000 trees in Minneapolis, an accomplishment made possible through the hard work of Tree Trust staff and volunteers.

The map below shows just how much the City Trees program has made a difference -- watch as trees from the past eight years help maintain and expand Minneapolis' urban tree canopy.
