City Trees

City Trees is a program that plants trees on properties for residents, businesses, and organizations. Planting trees is essential for reducing energy costs, better managing storm water, reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide, and increasing livability in our city. Healthy trees look beautiful, increase property values, keep the city cooler in the summer, and provide homes for wildlife. 

For Businesses and Organizations 

The City Trees Program plants trees on eligible Minneapolis businesses' and non-profit organizations' properties. Trees cost $30 each which includes a consultation with a landscaper to find the best trees for your property. 

For Residents

In 2020, the City Trees program is working with Tree Trust (a local nonprofit organization) to provide 2,000 trees to Minneapolis property owners. Trees will cost $25 each and can be purchased on these dates:

There is no lottery this year. Select and pay for you tree during your ordering window.

The 2020 tree distribution will be May 16, 17, and 18. You must be able to pick up your tree at the Minneapolis Impound Lot one of these dates.

If you have questions about trees on private property, contact Project Manager Sydney Schaaf at (612)-673-2084 or [email protected].  For questions about public and boulevard trees, contact the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.
