Low-Cost Trees To Replace Those Felled By Storms

The following is from the city:

Minneapolis homeowners affected by the June 21 severe storm will have the opportunity to order a $25 tree to plant on their private property. The City of Minneapolis is offering about 500 low-cost trees to Minneapolis homeowners who lost trees on their properties during the June 21 severe storm. Ordering will begin at 8 a.m., Monday, Sept. 9, and end Sept. 20 (earlier if the trees sell out first). To order a tree or to get more information, visit

Homeowners who order trees will pick them up in late September. Tree pickup will take place 2-7 p.m., Thursday, Sept 26, and 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturday, Sept 28 at the Minneapolis Impound Lot, 51 Colfax Ave. N. If the purchaser is unable to pick up the tree, they are encouraged to have someone else pick up their tree on their behalf.

Six species of trees will be available for order: hackberry, harvest gold linden, heritage oak (English oak and bur oak cross), heritage river birch, Honeycrisp apple, and royal star magnolia.

Volunteers will be available at the pickup location to help load each tree and a complimentary bag of mulch.
The Park Board estimates 3,000 trees on public land were destroyed or damaged in that storm; the number on private property is not known.

The City still plans its regular spring tree distribution for property owners citywide.
