Tree Sale Tips

  • Prepare planting sites before attending the sale. Call Gopher State One-Call (651-454-0002) to have utilities marked before digging. 
  • Learn how to plant bare root shrubs and tree seedlings by visiting this link.  
  • Arrive early for the best selection. 
  • Try to determine what trees you want before the sale.
  • Plant bare root trees immediately. 
  • Protect trees against damage from deer and rodents until they are well established. Consider placing protection around them for the first few years. 
  • Permits are required for planting within the boulevard/right-of-way.


Boulevard Trees Require Permit for Planting

Trees planted within the boulevard/right-of-way on your property (15 feet in from the curb) require a City permit prior to planting. Boulevard tree permits are free and help the City keep track of the City’s boulevard tree population in the wake of the present Emerald Ash Borer threat. A permit is also required for property owners wishing to remove a tree in boulevard/right-of-way. The Boulevard Tree Work Permit application can be downloaded from the Boulevard Trees webpage.

Residents are also reminded to make sure that any contractors hired to perform tree work must be licensed by the City. A list of Burnsville’s licensed tree contractors can be downloaded or obtained by contacting the City forester. 

When considering planting locations within a boulevard area, make sure your tree or shrub WILL NOT:

  • Obstruct the sight lines of pedestrians or vehicles entering an intersection
  • Obstruct passage over sidewalks   
  • Block road signs

For more information on requirements, licensed contractors or to obtain a permit application contact Dave Grommesch, City Forester, at 952-895-4508 or via email.
