PLANT A TREE - RAKE IN SOME CASH
Purchase a shade tree and receive 40% off the purchase price (up to $80)! Sponsored by TreesLouisville and the Louisville Metro Division of Community Forestry
Shade in the summer and a buffer against winter winds can lower your energy bills and trees raise property values of landscaped homes.
Trees release oxygen and help filter pollutants out of the air – as much as 7-24% – reducing respiratory illness.
Trees release water vapor into the atmosphere and create shade, both effective ways of controlling the Urban Heat Island effect and keeping our city cool!
Louisville’s tree canopy loses about 54,000 trees every year. Trees provide so many benefits to our city’s residents and are a vital part of our city’s infrastructure, so ask yourself – Have you planted a tree today?
* Shade trees are generally medium to large sized trees that have spreading canopies (think oaks, maples, lindens and elms), though smaller species like redbuds or serviceberries would also fall under this category. Avoid dwarf ornamental varieties. If you have questions about whether your tree is eligible for a rebate, email email@example.com.
** For a list of prohibited trees and trees appropriate for our region, refer to the DCF Master Tree List. Prohibited species are listed on the final page.
