Plant More Trees

A partnership focused on bringing trees, shade, and beauty to homes in our North Minneapolis and Seward neighborhoods.

How the Program Works:

1. Express interest by completing our interest form.

2. We’ll connect you with our Tree Team to set up a socially-distant consultation to help decide upon the best spot and best species for your property as well as provide you with details on how to care for your tree(s) into the future!

3. We’re still working on the planting plan for 2021 – we are looking to get trees in the ground in both the spring and fall of this year! Trees will be planted at home sites courtesy of  Autonomous Collective members, volunteers, and Tree Trust program staff. Suggested donation: $50/tree. You can donate here.


4. Water your new tree(s) for the first 3 growing seasons following planting.

5. Enjoy your new tree(s) for many years to come!

If you are interested in learning more about the 2021 PLANT MORE TREES Minneapolis program, please complete our interest form. Trees will be made available to North Minneapolis and Seward residents in the Spring and/or Fall of 2021.

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. Since 2017, a collaboration of small businesses from Minneapolis calling themselves the Autonomous Collective came forward to fund the program and support their local
community. They have replanted over 225 trees in North Minneapolis since 2017. They invite friends and colleagues
to also support the effort to PLANT MORE TREES by making a donation.
