The Tree Purchase Rebate is a cost-share program designed to encourage residential and commercial property owners to plant native shade trees on landscaped property.
The city will reimburse the purchase price of a shade tree at a cost-share of 50% - up to $100 per tree. Each household or business may purchase up to four trees, for a maximum reimbursement of $200 per year. After the tree is purchased and planted, the purchase receipt and the Tree Purchase Rebate Form are submitted for reimbursement.
