Landmark Tree Program

imageLandmark 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.

Nominations for the Landmark Tree Program are being accepted now through November 1, 2016.

Benefits of a tree receiving Landmark Tree status include:

  • The tree will be posted on the interactive Landmark Tree Tour map as well as the printable Landmark Tree Map, so visitors and residents can view Saint Paul's most remarkable trees.
  • A short description of the tree will be posted on the Landmark Trees page along side other outstanding trees in Saint Paul.
  • The tree will be recognized at the annual Blooming Saint Paul Awards along with a certificate of appreciation to the nominator and a certificate of recognition to the owner of the tree.
  • The tree will retain the Landmark Tree status for the rests of its life.

*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.
