The Trees for NoMi program was launched following the 2011 tornado disaster in North Minneapolis (NoMi). The area was devastated and new trees were desperately needed in the "tornado zone” for private property. Today, the Trees for NoMi program continues to provide free trees planted by volunteers at homes in NoMi, after homeowners willingly attend an educational seminar on how to properly care for trees. The program scope has expanded beyond the tornado zone to other areas of NoMi that also have low tree cover and lesser resources.

Over the years, funding for the program has come from various corporate and private funders and recently, a collaboration of small businesses from Minneapolis have come forward to sponsor the program.
Biota Landscapes is proud to motivate this initiative by affecting exponential positive change. We invite you to join us by making a donation in any amount. (One planted tree costs $80).
We have pledged to match the first $2,000 in donations raised through this fundraising page, and if we hit our goals, another $5,000 will be donated by Schafer Richardson — effectively tripling the net number of trees planted through your donation.
n addition to our matching donation, biota team members will also be donating their time on planting day to assist Tree Trust in planting day operations.
