City of Minneapolis offers residents $25 trees for their yards
Interested in beautifying your yard, adding home value and maybe knocking off a few bucks on your energy bills? Minneapolis is offering 1,000 residents a tree for their yard for $25.
You can choose from Black Hills spruce, Korean mountain ash, prairie fire crab, accolade elm, bur oak, and mount royal plum trees.
Who doesn't enjoy a cheap tree? And if you think trees aren't worth it, Arbor Day Foundation gives you the details on their benefits.

Make sure to read the instructions (like calling about underground wires before you dig).
