Free trees
for frogtowN And Friends

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 more than 600 trees in front and back yards, and on public spaces in Frogtown. Our goal is 1,000 new trees by 2025! JOIN US!

In 2022, through a collaboration with the US Forest Service, AmeriCorps, Tree Trust and nearby neighborhood  organizations, we helped to facilitate the planting of 259 trees in Frogtown, as well as in Hamline-Midway, Summit-University, and Payne-Phalen neighborhoods. Here's a summary report of our work in 2022.


By adding to the tree canopy of our community, we help improve the environmental health of residents and visitors.


Check out our map showing where trees have been planted, from 2012 to 2022. Is your Frogtown Green tree on the map?

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


Volunteers will plant the tree for you! All you have to do is dig a hole for your new tree. And you'll need to water it regularly! We'll send additional tips on how to take care of it. 

Yep, we're not 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 home-owner?

No problem.


Over 65% of property in Frogtown is rental. We're working hard to get trees onto rental properties. If you're a tenant or a landlord, we can work with you. Contact Chris, 651-319-2967.
