Minneapolis $25 trees lottery
March 13 - March 20
Due to its popularity, the City of Minneapolis’ $25 trees program will operate by lottery this year. Minneapolis property owners can enter the lottery any time March 13-20 for a tree to plant on private Minneapolis property this spring.
Lottery entrants will hear back by March 22 and must pick up trees May 20, 21 or 22 at the City of Minneapolis Impound Lot. About 1,000 property owners will be able to order a $25 five- to eight-foot tree. Fifteen varieties available include large species, flowering trees, and several kinds of fruit trees. Comparable trees cost about $125 at a nursery. Info: www.treetrust.org.
