A popular program offering landscape-quality trees at a deep discount to Alliant Energy customers will be held at six locations across Iowa this fall. Residential tree distributions will be held in Buena Vista, Fayette, Lee, Linn, Lucas and Story counties this September and October.
Alliant Energy’s Operation ReLeaf helps their customers save energy in their homes using trees to create summer shade and winter wind breaks.
Through the program, Alliant Energy residential customers may purchase high quality trees for $25 each, on a first-come, first-served basis. These trees typically retail for between $65 and $125.
Advanced order is highly recommended, and advance purchase is limited to two trees per household. In the event there are extra trees available on distribution day, those trees will be released for purchase at that time. Order forms are available online at www.alliantenergy.com/releaf.

Mature height of a tree should be given special consideration.
