You can help build Bloomington’s forest canopy 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 15th year, this program helps the City maintain its Tree City USA designation and has added more than 3,000 trees to Bloomington’s urban forest. Residents may purchase a maximum of five trees per household. To place a tree order, go to, mail in the completed order form or call 952-563-8760.
