Treebate

Plant trees and save money!

 

The Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) has a great seasonal program called Treebate that rewards Portland residents for planting trees.

 

Trees help contribute to clean rivers and healthy watersheds by keeping rainwater out of our sewer system. A large tree can absorb nearly 600 gallons of stormwater a year! If you plant an eligible tree, BES will credit your city utility bill! Your Treebate credit will depend on your tree’s size and future potential to help manage stormwater.   

 

Treebate is easy: purchase an eligible tree (or trees) and plant it in your residential yard. Then, submit a Treebate application along with your receipt. Applications are due by April 30.
