Program History

This program was launched following the tornado disaster in 2011 so new trees could be planted into the “tornado zone.” The initial funding came from the Tree Trust Rob MacIntyre Fund which honored a great friend of Tree Trust who lost his life during clean-up following the tornado. Over the years, the program expanded to other areas of North Minneapolis and funding came from an anonymous family foundation and other private donors replanting over 1,500 trees. Since 2017, a collaboration of small businesses from the Twin Cities metro calling themselves the Autonomous Collective came forward to fund the program and help rebuild the local tree canopy. This effort has added another 225 trees to North Minneapolis. With funding through a partnership with the City of Minneapolis and a grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, we will plant more trees in the fall of 2023 and spring of 2024.
