Planting a tree at home or work has never been more affordable. Thanks to funding from the District Department of the Environment, we provide rebates up to $100 to individuals who purchase and plant trees on private residential or commercial property in D.C. Newly planted trees are eligible for a discount on your property’s DC Water bill through DDOE’s RiverSmart Rewards program.
