Arbor Day Tree Sale

In celebration of Arbor Day, the City offers bare root trees at wholesale prices to residents.

About bare root trees

The trees are sold in bare root form. The average caliper size of these trees is 1 to 1.5 inches with an average height of 8 to 10 feet. These bare root trees do not meet newly constructed home landscape requirements of 2 inches. For best results these trees will need to be planted the same day they are picked up.

Call before you dig!

Have underground utilities located in your yard before you dig? Contact Gopher State One call at 651-454-0002 at least two working days in advance.

No refunds or replacements

The City does not assume responsibility for the successful transplanting of these trees. Weather conditions, methods of handling and aftercare govern the results. Trees will be sold with the understanding that if they arrive in good condition and are accepted, the city’s responsibility ceases. Therefore, we do not give out refunds or replace trees that fail. We do not give refunds for trees not picked up.
