2018 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 $30 for large shade trees and $40 for fruit trees and smaller species. 

Due to such popular demand in years past, this year the City Tree program will only 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 13,000 trees in Minneapolis, an accomplishment made possible through the hard work of Tree Trust staff and volunteers.

Program Participation

Since 2006, there have been over 13,000 participants in the City Trees Program. Click on the links below to learn more about the City Trees Program participation:
