Landmark Trees

The City of Saint Paul is rich in history, culture, and natural resources. With over 500,000 trees, the urban forest of Saint Paul consists of some trees that have endured since the city’s inception. Since then, these trees have continued to provide multiple environmental, social, and economic benefits that have been instrumental in shaping our communities. The Landmark Tree* program was created to locate, document, and compile a record of remarkable trees within the City of Saint Paul.

  • Current Landmark Trees are posted on the interactive Landmark Tree Tour map.
  • Current Landmark Trees are posted on the printable Landmark Tree Map.
  • Current Landmark Trees are posted on the Landmark Tree List web page.
  • Landmark Trees retain the Landmark Tree status for the rest of their lives.

*Selection as a Landmark Tree does not guarantee the long term survival of, or preclude the removal of a nominated tree if its' condition declines. Unpredictable factors including storm damage, insect damage, disease, compromised structural integrity, or a combination of factors may impact a tree and necessitate its removal.

*The City of Saint Paul Landmark Tree Program is not currently active. All trees that have obtained Landmark status will remain as such, and the map/list will continue to be available through the above links.
