North Branch Fastpitch Association thanks Precision Landscape & Tree for their Gold Level Sponsorship for the 2021 season.  Precision Landscape & Tree is a local Twin Cities tree care company that treats every yard and property like it’s our own. Their goal is to provide the best possible solution for both the trees in question and the people who own them. Excellent tree care and customer service are our top two priorities. Our “low-impact” equipment is gentle on your land and can handle any size project, whether it's one tree or thousands of trees.


Headquartered in Little Canada, they serve the entire Twin Cities Metro Area. With over 33 years of experience in tree care, their arborists are well-trained to provide you with expert care for your property and your trees.

Spring Fundraiser!!

North Branch Fastpitch Association is raising money with Gertens Greenhouses!  It is our goal to raise a minimum of $3,000 with this fundraiser, and with your help we will shatter that number!  Our association will receive 30% of all plant sales and 15% of all plant card sales.  You can shop at with store ID 185.  Deadline for purchase is April 8, 2021 and all plants will be delivered to the association on April 28, 2021.  

***ATTN Parents/Players***  All Summer 2021 players are required to participate in the Spring Fundraiser through Gertens Greenhouses.  Each family will be required to raise a minimum of $75 through the fundraiser (which amounts to $250 in plant sales) or they have the option to "buy out" of the fundraiser by writing a check for $75 to North Branch Fastpitch Association.  All "buy out" payments will be due Friday, April 16, 2021.
