CFU Plant A Tree Retailers

When it comes to lowering your utility bill and saving energy, planting a tree may not spring to mind. However, planting trees to shade your home or block wind will make an impact on your home’s energy usage. Trees can reduce energy used for air conditioning or heat by as much as 30 percent.

Cedar Falls TREES and Cedar Falls Utilities can help you with a tree purchase.

Cedar Falls TREES is a nonprofit organization and partners with CFU to support the Plant-A-Tree program. When you purchase an eligible tree from a participating retailer, you will receive a 40% discount up to $100 per year per family.

CFU has contributed towards the cost of the tree, passing the savings along to you at the point of purchase. No rebate forms or paperwork is required.

To qualify for reimbursement, the planting site, soil and moisture conditions must be suitable for the species of the tree selected. Choose any tree from one of 36 eligible species specifically suited for Cedar Falls.

The discount is provided on a first come, first served basis until funding for the year is exhausted and is available now through October 31. You must receive electric service from CFU to be eligible.

Before you plant a tree or dig in your yard this spring, remember to call Iowa One Call at 811 to have underground services marked.
