The Minneapolis Tree Lottery has closed. We received nearly 3,000 entries for about 800 trees this year; we thank everyone who participated in this popular program! For those of you who were selected to purchase a tree, you can find information on picking up your tree below. 

Tree Pick Up Dates:IMG_2272

  • May 20 | 8:00am-2:00pm
  • May 21  | 8:00am-2:00pm
  • May 22 | 3:00pm-7:00pm

Location: Minneapolis Impound Lot, 51 Colfax Ave N. Minneapolis, MN 55405

Approximately two weeks prior to the pick up dates, you will receive one reminder postcard for the tree ordered which will serve as your “ticket” to pick up your tree.  Once you receive your postcard, plan where you will plant your tree, and be sure to get your underground utilities located the week prior to planting by calling Gopher State One Call at 800-252-1166 or by submitting a ticket online at http://www.gopherstateonecall.org/  

You will receive written planting and care instructions with each order. Trees must be picked up on designated dates or you will forfeit the tree and the money you paid.

Thank you for helping diversify Minneapolis’ community forest! Questions?  Contact our Forestry Department at 952-767-3886.

 

Things to consider when planting your tree:

  • You cannot plant on the boulevard (between sidewalk & street).
  • 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.
  • You will receive a brochure containing information about tree planting and care when you pick up your tree.
  • Save money on energy by planting large shade trees on the west or east side of your home.
  • Trees will vary in size depending on species; average between 3-8′ tall.
  • Large shade trees should be planted at least 15 feet away from nearby power lines and/or buildings.
