The purpose of the Community Tree Planting Rebate Program is to encourage homeowners to "plant roots" in our community while beautifying their yard. Other recognized benefits of urban tree planting include: increased property value, removal of air pollutants and increased energy savings from shade provided from the tree. This program will provide a rebate to City property owners who purchase an eligible tree for their property.
By changing the structure of Arbour Day from a subsidized tree distribution program into a rebate program, the City hopes that an increased number of homeowners will be able to benefit from the initiative. In 2015 there are a total of 325 rebates available.
