Annual Arbor Day Tree and Shrub Sale

Given the pandemic and Minnesota’s Stay-At-Home order, Lakeville Forestry staff have created an alternate plan to ensure residents receive their 2020 pre-ordered trees and shrubs in a way that follows social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC.

The City has partnered with Cross Nurseries (who is one of the main suppliers of trees and shrubs for the sale) to host this year’s Tree & Shrub Pickup Event instead of the normal pick up at Lakeville’s Central Maintenance Facility. The Saturday April 25 pickup event is canceled.

We are sending out emails the week of April 13 explaining the alternate pickup at Cross Nursery. Watch for an email - you will not receive anything in the mail. Check your email for instructions on how to make a pickup appointment. 


The City’s annual tree and shrub sale offers you an opportunity to celebrate Arbor Day. Consider diversifying the species in your yard now that emerald ash borer has been found in Lakeville.

Watch for information on next year's sale in February 2021.

For more information about the tree and shrub sale, call 952-985-4600. For species selection, planting and tree care information, call the City Forester at 952-985-2724.
