City Trees

We explain the City Trees program and how to participate.

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. 

  • Fill out the Tree Survey. Requests for plantings are being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Trees are professionally planted, mulched, and include watering bags to assist you in caring for the trees.
  • To qualify, businesses or non-profits must have enough green space to accommodate a tree or trees, water, and maintain the trees (critical for the first three years). 

For residents

In 2021, 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 residents in any area are able to order a tree. The ordering window for 2021 is closed.
