The North Minneapolis Free Trees program was launched in 2011 to plant new trees in the area devastated by a tornado. 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, and funding was provided by an anonymous family foundation, and then Covanta HERC.
Recently, a collaboration of small businesses from Minneapolis who wish to give back to the community have come forward to fund the program this year. Thanks to all of these partners that will make this program possible in 2017!
