Free trees

for frogtown

Frogtown has less tree canopy on private land than any other city neighborhood. The energetic Tree Frogs are working to change that. This volunteer group has planted over 400 new trees in front and back yards, and on public spaces in Frogtown. Our goal is 1,000 new trees by 2025!

Donated trees are kept over the summer months in our innovative community gravel bins, at the Tree Park on Dale Street and Lafond Avenue. 


We're planting lots more trees in fall 2020 in collaboration with the city's forestry unit and the US Forest Service. This year, the Tree Frogs will plant a record 70 trees!

Here's What to do:

Learn about our trees and fill out the form below.

From fruit to shade trees, we have something for every Frogtown yard! Tell us your tree preference and how to get in touch with you by filling out the form below.

In fall,  you dig a hole, and we plant your tree.

Our volunteer Tree Frogs, will plant the tree for you! We'll mark utilities so you. All you have to do is dig a hole for your brand new tree, and take care of it. 

Yep, no kidding, it's really free! 

Our mission is to make Frogtown the greenest neighborhood in St. Paul!  We all benefit from cleaner air, shadier streets and a healthier community.

Not a homeowner?

No problem!

Since over 65% of property in Frogtown is rental, we want to work with renters and landlords to get trees onto rental property! We are talking directly to landlords, but if you're a tenant interested in a tree for your rental, tell your landlord about us!
