As of September 1, Environmental Services is again accepting Treebate applications. Portland residents who plant eligible trees in their yards can get a sewer bill credit of up to $50, depending on the size of the tree. The application is only available during the prefered planting season, September through April.
The Treebate Program has resulted in more than 1,000 Environmental Services customers receiving credits for planting 2,408 trees since the program began in 2009.
