Discounted Trees Offered for Dubuque Residents

The City of Dubuque Sustainability Office is partnering with Dubuque Trees Forever and local nurseries to offer residents discounts for trees and the opportunity to participate in climate action at the local level.

Dubuque residents interested in receiving a discount for a tree from a local nursery must attend a one-hour information session for tree-planting training and to learn more on how trees impact climate action. Registration is not required, and residents may choose one of three sessions that will be offered from 6-7 p.m. at the Carnegie-Stout Library Program Room on the main floor on: Thursday, July 28; Thursday, Aug. 25; or Thursday, Sept. 29.
Discounts received may be redeemed at Wagner's Nursery and Steve's Ace Nursery for trees roughly3-5 years old. Trees available through the program include Honeycrisp Apple, State Street Maple, Hackberry, Quaking Aspen, Ohio Buckeye, Autumn Gold Ginkgo, Japanese Lilac, Pagoda Dogwood, DeGroot Spire, and River Birch.
Trees have many benefits including, improving air quality, sequestering carbon, reducing energy use, managing stormwater, improving public health, and mitigating the heat island effect, as well as beautifying the community.
