photoxpress 9883488Starting immediately, residents of north Minneapolis whose properties were affected by the May 2011 tornado may have up to two free trees planted on their property by Tree Trust, a local nonprofit organization specializing in youth employment training and environmental stewardship in the Twin Cities.

To obtain a free tree, homeowners must attend a workshop hosted by Tree Trust. At the workshop, participants will receive guidance on placement and which tree species would be best for their property, as well as learn how to care for their new tree to help ensure survival and assist in their growth. Trees will be ordered at the workshops, so attendance is required in order to receive a tree. The workshops will be held on August 21, 27, and 29 from 6-7 pm. Please visit www.treetrust.org/nomitrees for locations and details.

Tree Trust will assist in the effort to reforest north Minneapolis, and is confident that the new tree plantings will have a positive effect – both environmental and social – on the neighborhood.

Residents may visit www.treetrust.org for more information about this free tree program.
