Austin Utilities is pleased to announce Partners in Planting program.
YOU can receive a $10 rebate when planting a tree from our Qualified Tree List!
We want to partner with YOU to plant trees all over Austin!
When you purchase a tree listed on our Qualified Tree List - from one of our partner nurseries; Berg's Nursery, Dolans Landscape Center, or Stiver's Nursery and Landscaping, you can receive a $10 rebate on your purchase. Our qualified Tree List includes trees that are well suited for the area to ensure you get the best return on your investment.
Rebate forms are available at our partnering nurseries or download one here. Be sure to fill your rebate form out completely and include a copy of your itemized receipt when submitting.
Why is Austin Utilities forming so many partnerships to "green-up" Austin? According to the U.S. Department of Energy, carefully positioned trees can save up to 25% of a household's energy consumption for heating and cooling. The net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours per day.
Not only that, trees clean the environment. One acre of trees provides enough oxygen for 18 people for one year and absorbs as much CO2 as a car produces by driving 26,000 miles.
