The Environmental Services Tree Program is accepting Treebate applications through the end of April. Getting a credit on your stormwater bill for planting a tree is a great perk in addition to beautifying your property and helping the community manage stormwater.
This program is open to single-family residences in Portland with a Portland Water Bureau utility account. Depending on the mature size of the tree, you could get a credit of up to $50.
The program is only offered during the preferred tree-planting season, September through April. Learn more about eligible trees here.
The Treebate Program has resulted in more than 1,000 Environmental Services customers receiving credits for planting nearly 2,800 trees since the program began in 2009.
How to Get Your Treebate
- Purchase a tree between September 1 and April 30
- Plant it in your Portland residential yard. Complete and submit a Treebate form by April 30 (include the tree purchase receipt with the purchase price circled)
- Receive a credit on your city water/sewer utility bill
