The 2014 Minneapolis City Tree Sale is beginning on Monday, March 17th.  Trees are available for Minneapolis homeowners, businesses, and nonprofits and must be planted on private property in the city.  Sixteen varieties of trees are available, and the trees cost $25.

Improving the urban tree canopy is a key strategy identified through the Hiawatha CARE Project.  The benefits of planting trees include:

  • improving air quality;
  • addressing stormwater;
  • creating habitat for animals;
  • increasing property values; and,
  • savng money on energy bills.

You can check the Tree Trust Project Website for more information on the program, including the types of trees available and an online and paper ordering form.
