Girl Hands with Tree
 
Put the power of shade to work in your community by applying for tree-planting grants. Our Trees Please! program promotes energy efficiency by providing windbreaks and shade while beautifying city-owned parks, roadways and other common areas within communities. 
 
How to become a Trees Please! Participant
Applicants must be an Iowa municipality in MidAmerican Energy's service territory. The standard Trees Please! grant is $1,000 per community and is awarded through an application process.
 
Trees purchased with program grants must provide energy efficiency benefits and be planted in common areas such as publicly-owned properties, schools and community spaces. Grant applications are sent to communities in the fall. Grants for tree-planting projects will be awarded the following spring.
