With all the stresses on our urban trees, it takes a village to maintain a healthy forest.

You can help by ordering a tree for your yard through the City’s annual Arbor Day tree sale. Bloomington residents can pre-purchase affordable bare-root trees to be delivered during the first week of May.

Now in its 17th year, this effort has added more than 3,000 trees to Bloomington’s urban forest and helps Bloomington maintain its Tree City USA designation.

To place a tree order, visit, mail in the order form below or call 952-563-8760. There is a limit of five trees
per household.
