On September 1, Environmental Services resumed accepting treebate applications. That marks the start of the fourth year of the program. Portland residents who plant eligible trees in their yards can get a sewer bill credit of up to $50 depending on the mature size of the tree.
Environmental Services has granted Treebates for more than 1,750 new trees since the program began. One out of every five Treebate trees is evergreen, one out of six is a fruit or nut tree, and one out of eight is a species native to the Portland area.
