Since the inception of the Minnesota Tree Care Advocate program in 1993, we have provided citizens with the most up to date text, the most involving hands-on classes, and taught skills that carry over to your own communities to make them a better place.
Our volunteers have helped us reach over 97,000 volunteer hours. Those hours have gone to planting, diagnosing, and teaching the public about our urban trees. Now, we're asking you to take the extra step of donating supplies and money to the organization that has worked diligently for your community.
Our programs accept a variety of donations, both monetary contributions and supply contributions. See below to learn how you can donate and what supplies we are currently in need of.
A list of donors will be included in our yearly report and at upcoming events to make sure that all involved in our programs can thank you for the support. Of course, anonymous donations are also accepted.
If you would like to make a monetary contribution to the Tree Care Advocate Program, please fill out the form below. All donations are tax deductible.
