City Trees Program 

City Trees ProgramPlant a tree. Create a shady spot in your yard and habitat for wildlife, save energy, absorb water runoff and increase property values.

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.
