The City of Minneapolis Urban Forest Policy [PDF] promotes the benefits of preserving, maintaining and planting trees by providing standards, guidelines and recommended practices. This ensures an urban forest that contributes to the quality of life for our residents and visitors.

Development of this policy was a collaboration between the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, the City of Minneapolis and others involved with urban forest management in Minneapolis.
