For those who purchased a tree: Trees will be available for pick up from the Municipal Services Center, 7105 Oxford Street, St. Louis Park on May 5th from 8:00 am until noon as well as May 7th from 5:00 pm until 7:00. You must pick up your tree during that time.
Trees will range in size from 4 to 6’ tall and will fit inside most vehicles (SMART cars excluded). If you cannot pick up your tree during that time, you can have someone pick up the tree for you. All abandoned trees will be planted within public spaces in St. Louis Park.
Things to consider:
- It’s the law to call Gopher State One Call (651-454-0002) at least three days before digging. They will mark buried utility lines for your safety.
- Each tree will come equipped with a Plantra Tree Bark Protector to protect young trees from wildlife, winter sun scald, lawn mower and/or weed whip damage. These guards should remain on your tree for at least the first three years.
- If you want to provide your tree with the most efficient watering system around, purchase a drip irrigation bag. Simply fill the bag with water and your tree will be deeply watered over 5-8 hours.
