Testing one of the nation's most beautiful and bountiful urban canopies, a series of devastating thunderstorms destroyed over 1,000 trees across Saint Paul in 2007. The extensive damage spurred many community members to speak out about tree restoration efforts and funding. The City responded, creating a master plan that detailed tree planting efforts but highlighted the lack of resources needed to push the plan forward.
Saint Paul Parks and Recreation, recognizing that the quickest way to direct funds to tree restoration efforts was to utilize non-City resources, created Trees Saint Paul. The program has since been utilized to restore and maintain Saint Paul's urban canopy.
Trees Saint Paul is a donation program created by Saint Paul Parks and Recreation to help maintain and improve Saint Paul’s beautiful urban landscape by planting trees.
