Video: What’s a Tree Trust?
Every year, Minneapolis loses a lot of trees to storms and diseases. Many of these trees are on private property. Replacing them is expensive and time consuming, so the local nonprofit, Tree Trust is helping the City of Minneapolis to ease financial burdens on families who want to help beautify the city, provide shade and boost their home values. After June storms tore up a lot of Minneapolis's tree canopy, this fall's City Trees distribution took on an even greater significance.
