Myesha and the Supported Work Program
Myesha came to Tree Trust seeking work. She had part-time experience in retail, but had a passion for childcare and wanted to learn more about the field. Tree Trust secured a paid-internship for her at Sunshine Tree Child Development Center as part of our Supported Work Program, which specifically serves recipients of the Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP). 

Read more about the Supported Work Program, and Myesha's success at Sunshine Tree.

Get a Tree this Spring!
It's that time of year again! In partnership with Minneapolis and St. Louis Park, Tree Trust will be providing subsidized trees to residential property owners of the two municipalities. 

Minneapolis property owners can sign up for the lottery beginning February 1. The St. Louis Park tree sale will open March 5. 

Don't live in Minneapolis or St. Louis Park? Contact your city officials and let them know you would love an opportunity to increase your city's canopy by implementing a tree distribution in your area. For additional information, please contact Director of Community Forestry  Karen Zumach   or call: 952-767-3886.
