Welcome to Lone Tree – A Great Town in Which to Live.

Lone Tree was established in 1872, and still embodies the values of its origins: community pride and genuine concern for the well-being of its residents.

Located between the constant movement of both Iowa City and Muscatine, and just minutes from Avenue of the Saints, Interstate 80, and 380. Lone Tree provides a more relaxed way of life. Lone Tree offers small-town life where neighbors know neighbors and help each other out in time of need.

Lone Tree offers a great place to raise children, with a Preschool and K-12 School all housed in one building. There is a close bond between the people and the school. There are three parks with plenty of playground equipment, and a variety of youth oriented activities throughout the year.

Many local services are available including, a grocery store, gas, floral shop, pizza parlor, convenience store, medical clinic, dentist, local newspaper, two churches, long-term care facility, and more. Check out the Local Business secion under the Chamber of Commerce tab.
