Although tree planting season is coming to a close, you still have time to purchase and plant trees in your yard and take advantage of the Treebate credit. Trees help the city manage stormwater where it falls, saving ratepayers money while contributing to clean rivers, healthy watersheds, and livable, sustainable communities.
It’s easy to participate in four steps:
1. Purchase an eligible tree (or trees)
2. Plant them in your residential yard
3. Submit your Treebate application and your receipt
4. Get a credit on your stormwater utility bill
Don’t delay—the application must be received by April 30th to be considered. Learn more about the Treebate program and how trees manage stormwater at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/treebate. Happy planting!
