Tree Rebates

(yeah- we give YOU money when you buy an approved tree, we’re nice like that)

The short of it is, you buy an approved tree and then apply for a rebate between Oct. 1 and May 15. Boom. Cash in your pocket. Oxygen for Denton.

Visit www.dentontreerebates.com for step-by-step instructions, a list of qualifying trees, and to apply.

To prioritize plantings in response to tree loss due to Winter Storm Uri and the Emerald Ash Borer, we are incentivizing planting bigger trees with a tiered rebate.

• 5-gallon – $50

• 13-gallon – $100

• 35-gallon – $250

There is a maximum of five trees per residence for trees of 5-gallon or 13-gallon size, or two trees of 35-gallon size. The cost per tree must be equal to or greater than the amount of the rebate category selection and must not exceed $500 per applicant.
