City Trees Program

The Minneapolis Health Department and Tree Trust work together to offer low-cost trees for Minneapolis residents. Below you will find information about tree programs and resources you can access in your neighborhood.

If you win a tree, take a photo as they plant it and email it to us to support our Polinator program!


Minneapolis residents can enter our lottery to buy a low-cost, $30 tree (~$150 value). The lottery is open from Feb. 1 – March 31. You will be notified in April if you’re selected to order a tree and pick-up will take place in May.  All the information to plant and care for your new tree will be provided. Enter the lottery

Businesses and organizations

Our program plants trees for businesses, organizations, and nonprofits. Trees cost $30 each, which includes:

  • A consultation with a landscaper to find the best trees for your property.
  • Professional planting.
  • Mulch.
  • Watering bags.

Businesses must water the trees weekly and prune them. Request a tree for your business or organization.
