One Million Trees Residential Tree Program

Beautify your yard and save energy when you plant a tree.

We've partnered with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to offer landscaping trees for only $25 per tree. The trees usually retail for $75 and they're available on a first-come, first-served basis.

To participate:

  • Purchase trees in advance. Please note there is a limit of two trees per household.
  • Send the completed order form and payment to the community partner named on the form.
  • Pick up your trees on the day of distribution in your community. Dates and times are listed below.

Please note:

  • If you pay for a tree but are unable to pick it up on distribution day, the local county conservation organization will consider your paid fees a donation.
  • IMPORTANT: To purchase a tree, you must be a residential customer of Alliant Energy in Iowa.
