Plant a tree to celebrate Arbor Day

Help build Bloomington’s urban forest. Order your trees from the City’s annual tree sale ahead of time and pick up your trees during the event. Now in its 14th year, the tree sale has added approximately 2,800 trees to Bloomington’s urban forest. This program is among the initiatives that helps Bloomington maintain its Tree City USA status.

Through the sale, Bloomington residents can purchase affordable shade trees and find out more about trees. Experts will give a demonstration about planting bare-root trees and be on hand to answer questions. Learn proper planting techniques and why a diverse mix of species is important.

Residents may purchase a maximum of up to five trees per household. To place a tree order, go to, mail in the order form below, or call 952-563-8760. Trees will be delivered to the address listed on the order form in the first week of May.
