CFU Customers Save up to $100 on a Tree Purchase

Spring is a great time to plant a tree and CFU and our Plant a Tree program can help you save up to $100 off your purchase.

Beyond environmental and health benefits planting a tree can help you save energy and reduce your utility bill.

Trees that shade your home or block wind can reduce energy used for air conditioning or heat by as much as 30 percent. 

The Plant a Tree program is one of the many ways Cedar Falls Utilities partners with customers to reduce energy consumption.

When you purchase an eligible tree from a participating nursery you will receive a 40% discount up to $100 per year per family. 

CFU contributes towards the cost of the tree passing the savings along to you at the point of purchase. No rebate forms or paperwork is required. You will just need to ask the participating nursery for the CFU Plant a Tree discount.

To qualify for reimbursement the planting site soil and moisture conditions must be suitable for the species of the tree selected. 

Customers can choose any tree from one of 40 eligible species specifically suited for Cedar Falls. 

Prior to planting call Iowa One-Call at 811 to have underground services marked. 

You must receive electric service from CFU to be eligible. For more information visit
