Most of the trees are being replanted in state parks; two will go to Twins fans.

I think they should've auctioned them all off and donated the money to the charity known as Democrats...

I think they should be replanted in Hennipen County parks, not state parks, as we in Hennepin County bought them.

This is a major loss for Target Filed. Probably puts it in the category of US Cellular field or the Oakland Coliseum. Bye bye signature item. :(

I was just talking about the trees yesterday. I hope I win the one saved for season ticket holders. Target Field's loss can be my gain!

All because these over rated hitters that the Twins have (Mauer) cannot hit the ball like in the Metrodome! The Yankees did not find them a distraction!!!

Fourteen spruce trees. I think you people are defeating the purpose. Do you realize how much carbon is being used to initially plant,then uproot with huge diesel powered trucks and machinery, then transport with more diesel powered trucks and machinery, then replant with more diesel powered trucks and machinery? Hahahah. You'll need about ten thousand new trees to eliminate the carbon from getting rid of these fourteen spruce trees. Good Grief. Just cut them down, the environment will be way ahead.

Take that cable tie off, or that tree will look like a fish caught in a six pack holder.

Each tree marked with an office major league baseball hologram. What will they think of next? I can hardly wait until I can buy my officially licensed MLB hologrammed bag of mulch made from grass clippings from Target Field.
