Minnesota's Arbor Day is April 26, 2024. May is Arbor Month.

Plant and care for trees, grow resilient communities!

Plant and care for trees now to support resilient community forests into the future by thoughtfully choosing, planting, and caring for a diverse mix of trees.

Minnesota's trees are being stressed by increasing pressure from changing temperatures and precipitation and more extreme weather events. Make your tree more resilient by selecting a healthy tree adapted to changing climate conditions. By choosing a species that adds to the diverse mix of trees in your area, you are helping our neighborhood trees thrive.

Choosing trees that are resilient to a changing climate will help our community forests store carbon, improve air and water quality, and enhance other benefits healthy trees provide. So, plant or pick a tree to care for this Arbor Day or Arbor month.

Start by choosing a tree suitable for the location you will be planting it. Then make your tree more resilient by properly planting and caring for it.
