Plant a tree, get a "Treebate!"

January 24, 2014

Turns out, it is easy being green.

Does your home have space for new trees?  The Bureau of Environmental Services’ (BES) Urban Tree Canopy program can help!

Trees are a valuable piece of our city’s infrastructure, and a great way to keep our rivers and streams clean. A mature tree can capture more than 500 gallons of stormwater each year – water which would otherwise gather in our streets and flow into our storm drains.

Our Treebate program offers money back – up to $50 for a large tree – to Portlanders who plant trees at home.  The best time of year to plant new trees is from early Fall through the end of April – which means now is the perfect time to pick out new trees for your home!

BES is accepting Treebate applications through April 30 – to learn more about the program, including eligible trees for a rebate, visit:
