Discounted Trees Offered for Dubuque Residents
Aug. 22, 2022
The City of Dubuque Sustainability office is partnering with Dubuque Trees Forever and local nurseries to offer Dubuque residents discounts for trees and the opportunity to participate in climate action at the local level.
Dubuque residents interested in receiving a discount for a tree from a local nursery must attend a one-hour information session for tree-planting training and to learn more on how trees impact climate action. Registration is not required, and residents may choose one of two remaining session that will be offered from 6-7 p.m. at the Carnegie-Stout Library Program Room on the main floor on: Thursday, Aug. 25; or Thursday, Sept. 29.
There are 10 of the $250, 22 of the $125, and 46 of the $25 coupons remaining. Residents living in moderate-to-lower income areas with minimal tree canopies qualify for the higher dollar amount coupons. Discounts received may be redeemed at Wagner's Nursery and Steve's Ace Nursery for trees roughly 3-5 years old. Trees available through the program include Honeycrisp Apple, State Street Maple, Hackberry, Quaking Aspen, Ohio Buckeye, Autumn Gold Ginkgo, Japanese Lilac, Pagoda Dogwood, DeGroot Spire, and River Birch. Tree transporting and planting help is available.
Trees have many benefits including, improving air quality, sequestering carbon, reducing energy use, managing stormwater, improving public health, and mitigating the heat island effect, as well as beautifying the community.
