DNR Residential Tree Distribution Program

The Iowa DNR, through a partnership with Alliant Energy, 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.

Alliant Energy’s One Million Trees initiative helps plant more than one million trees - one tree for each utility customer - by the end of 2030. Alliant Energy customers can participate and purchase up to two trees per planting address at $25 per tree. Tree pick-up dates and locations include:

  • Tuesday, April 26 in Decorah
  • Saturday, April 30 in Ottumwa
  • Thursday, May 5 in Storm Lake
  • Tuesday, May 17 in Ames

Find event location addresses and times along with order forms and requirements, and information about available tree species on the DNR webpage at www.iowadnr.gov/Conservation/Forestry/Urban-Forestry/Residential-Tree-Programs.
