Types of Trees Available from Tree Nursery

Post and photo by Jeff Skrenes, Hawthorne Neighborhood Council Housing Director

On Saturday June 18 from 8 a.m. to noon, Hawthorne will have trees available on a first-come, first-served basis.  The tree nursery is located at 404 31st Ave N.  In order to be eligible for a tree, you have to be a property owner in north Minneapolis, and the tree must be placed within the community.  Our preference is to give away trees to people affected by the tornado, but we're going on the honor system.  Here are the trees we have available:

Autumn Brilliance - 10
Kentucky Coffeetree - 4
Redmond Linden - 12
Greenspire Linden - 5
Juniper - 7
Sugar Maple - 2
Blue Beech - 1
MN Redbud - 1

One of the Autumn Brilliance, as well as the Sugar Maples and the Blue Beech look to be in rough shape.  I believe they're all alive, but those four trees need a home fast.  Everything else is in good condition.  I look forward to getting people trees on Saturday!
