The Iowa DNR, through a partnership with the USDA Forest Service, is excited to offer private residents the opportunity to buy landscape-sized trees at an extreme discount. Trees provide a myriad of benefits to homeowners including reduced home heating and cooling costs, decreased stormwater, shade for outdoor activities, higher home values, and enhanced beauty.
*If you are planning to submit orders for more than one address, please reach out to us directly before submitting.
For more information, contact Shaila Claibourn, Urban and Community Forestry Technician, at 515-380-8876 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Find resources and information about selecting, planting, and maintaining trees in the urban landscape on Iowa DNR Urban Forestry Resources and Links.
Customers can purchase no more than 2 trees per private property. If multiple properties are owned by a single individual, two trees can be purchased by property. Each unique property address must be listed on the order form. Please bring your confirmation email showing species and locations purchased to the event.
Customers must pick up their tree(s) during the event time listed. Trees that are not picked up will be forfeited to the local partner organization. No warranty is offered on these trees. If trees remain unsold by the event date, the unsold trees will be offered for sale towards the end of the event.
Each event will only offer a select few of these species. After selecting your location on the order form, only the species available at that location will be listed. As trees sell out, the order form will be update to only list available species at that time.
