Black Hills Energy Power of Trees

Our Power of Trees program is a partnership of Black Hills Energy, Trees Forever, and your community to support and fund tree-planting projects that save energy, beautify your community, and enhance the environment. It is offered to Iowa communities served by Black Hills Energy.
 
Trees can be planted on either public or private property through this program.  Past projects funded have included schools, parks, nursing homes, street trees, residential plantings and replacement of storm-damaged trees.
 
Black Hills Energy provides matching grants of $500 to $7,000 per project. Trees Forever administers and facilitates the program, providing on-site technical and planning support.

Application deadlines: June 1 and November 1. We’re here to help you with your application or answer any questions.  Contact Meredith Borchardt at 641-430-3854.
