Minneapolis residents qualify for cheap trees - Minneapolis / St. Paul News - The Blotter:
If your yard is looking a little too naked or you're already sick of all that sun in your eyes, don't miss your chance to purchase a cheap tree for your property. Minneapolis has partnered with Tree Trust to provide 1,000 trees to residents for a reduced price. As of today, there are about 500 trees left.
There are six to choose from and the tree will cost you $25. The trees would sell for up to $150 at a retailer. All orders must be made by April 16 (or while supplies last) and residents have to pick up the trees May 8-10 at the Minneapolis Impound Lot.
Tracie Huhn, Tree Trust director of development, says their mission is to increase the urban tree canopy and give residents a chance to improve the environment.
