Treebate Season Finale April 30, 2017


No doubt about it, spring is in the air!  With the return of longer days and warmer weather comes the end of tree planting season (It’s best to plant trees when the weather is cold and wet and the trees are dormant.)  So, if you’ve been meaning to add a new tree to your yard, do it as soon as possible to reduce the risk of transplant shock.  Our handy planting guide gives you some additional tips to help your tree survive the transplant process and thrive in its new home.

With the end of the planting season comes the closing of the annual Treebate program on April 30. What’s Treebate? Every tree growing in Portland contributes to clean rivers, healthy watersheds, and the health of the people who live here. That’s why Environmental Services says “thank you” with a one-time adjustment to your sewer/stormwater/water utility bill when you plant a tree in your residential yard. The larger the tree, the larger the credit, but some rules do apply.


Have you planted a tree that qualifies for Treebate? Give yourself some credit and be sure to send in your Treebate application by the end of the month. Apply online or print an application to mail in by visiting
