We've partnered with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the Arbor Day Foundation in Wisconsin to offer landscaping trees to our customers 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, in Iowa there is a limit of two trees per household, and in Wisconsin there is a limit of one tree 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 or your tree will be donated to the community.
  • IMPORTANT: To purchase a tree, you must be a residential customer of Alliant Energy in Iowa or Wisconsin.

In 2024, we are excited to have trees available for residents in the following Iowa communities.
