40% Rebate on Purchase of Shade Trees

While many of us typically imagine springtime when thinking about tree planting, cold weather months are actually a great time to get a new tree in the ground! Planting a tree while it’s dormant will give it the opportunity to establish in its new home before leafing out when spring rolls around. If you’re thinking about planting a tree at home, now’s the perfect time to do it.

TreesLouisville, in partnership with the Louisville Metro Division of Community Forestry, is currently running a Tree Rebate Program as an incentive for homeowners to plant more trees. The Tree Rebate Program is open to all residents of Jefferson County. Participants can earn a rebate of 40 percent (up to $80) on the purchase of a shade tree. Rebates will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis until funds run out. For full details, visit treeslouisville.org/rebate.
