Donate a Tree!

Our next holiday tree could be yours! Do you have a large evergreen tree you would consider donating to a future Community Tree Lighting Festival? If so, please fill out the Tree Donation Interest Form.

Completing an interest form does not obligate you to donate a tree. Each year, inquiries will be evaluated in late summer or fall by members of the Coon Rapids Community Strength Foundation to determine if a tree is appropriate for donation.
