City Trees Program
Plant 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.
In the past six years, the City Trees program planted more than 7,500 trees in Minneapolis, an accomplishment made possible through the hard work of Tree Trust staff and volunteers.
