Are you looking to spruce up your yard this spring for a low price? Enter the City Tree Lottery beginning Feb. 1 through March 31 for a chance to get up to two $30 trees!
About the City Tree Lottery
The Minneapolis Health Department is partnering with Tree Trust to offer 1,000 low-cost shade and evergreen trees to help build the city’s tree canopy. The trees range from 3 feet to 8 feet, depending on the type of tree.
How the lottery works
All Minneapolis property owners can enter the lottery. If selected, you’ll get an email in April with information on how to order your tree(s). Trees must be picked up on either May 18 or 19.
We’re especially encouraging residents who live or own property in Green Zones to enter. Together we can build healthier communities by increasing our tree canopy.
Trees offer a number of environmental, economic, and social-emotional benefits. Trees can help:
- Shade and cool your house or apartment
- Lower utility bills
- Increase property value
- Clean the air
- Collect stormwater
- Provide a habitat for wildlife
- Improve health and well-being
Caring for your tree
