Every tree planted in Portland contributes to cleaner rivers and streams. Treebate is an incentive to plant yard trees at Portland residences.

Treebate is a seasonal program available annually from the early fall through April 30 to coincide with the best time of the year to plant.

Environmental Services is accepting Treebate applications until April 30, 2014.
