A Non-Profit, Community Based Organization Dedicated to the Beautification of Our Area

Spruce Up Austin is an action-oriented group located in Austin Minnesota. Members are local citizens and volunteers dedicated to improving the City of Austin with tree planting and educational programs. Some people know us as the local tree huggers. Please explore our website and learn about our past projects and memorials. All of our past accomplishments have been made possible by the many people who volunteer their time and support.

Spruce Up Austin started in 1990 as a committee of the Austin Chamber of Commerce and in 1998 became a 501(c)3 organization.

Governed by an active eighteen member board, Spruce Up Austin’s slogan is Deeply Rooted in Austin s Future.
