From the Tree Trust
Minneapolis residents, mark your calendars:
This year, due to increased demand, the Minneapolis Tree Sale will be functioning differently.
Residents of Wards 3-7 and 10 will be able to order their tree on March 6 through March 12, starting at 9:00am. Tree Trust will be collecting orders for these wards ONLY during this time.
Residents living outside of Wards 3-7 and 10, will be able to register for the tree lottery during the week of March 13-18. The lottery will be open the entire week, so there is no need to come racing to the website on March 13. When you register on the Tree Trust website, you will be entered into the lottery for a chance to purchase a tree through the program. Your address can only be registered one time through this process.
The lottery draw will take place during the week of March 20, with selected participants notified by March 22. If you are selected, you will be given further instructions (all via email) during this time. Be sure to check your email regularly!
There are 14 tree species to choose from, including two duos, so make sure to do your research to pick the best tree for your yard! Trees are $25 and selected residents can order one per property.
If you live elsewhere in the metro, check with your city of residence to see if they offer a tree sale. If not, have them contact the Tree Trust Community Forestry department.
For more information on all tree sales, please visit our Get a Tree webpage.
