No, only trees purchased between October 1 and May 1 qualify for rebates.
The list of approved trees for the program includes species that are native or adapted to this area of Texas, meaning that they are well-suited to our climate and rainfall amounts. By offering rebates for these trees specifically, the City is encouraging planting of trees that are the most likely to survive and preserve Denton's tree canopy.
Yes, you may submit multiple applications; however, you may only apply for a maximum of five trees per property during the current program year (ending May 1).
To help ensure that only Denton residents apply for and receive rebates, they are only available in the form of a credit to City of Denton Utility Service users; however, landlords or property owners who apply for trees on their properties in which the utility service is not in their name may receive refunds as a check.
Rebates are offered by utility customer address, meaning that each individual property is eligible. Please ensure that the information submitted on your application(s) is accurate for each property address, including the number of trees and species at each property, to aid in the follow-up survival rate surveys that may be conducted by the City.
The Tree Rebate Program is one of six programs introduced by the City of Denton and Keep Denton Beautiful, Inc. as part of the Denton Tree Initiative, a citywide campaign to increase the tree canopy in Denton. All Denton Tree Initiative programs, including the Tree Rebate Program, are made possible through special funding allocated by the Denton City Council from the City Tree Mitigation Fund.
Rebates are only available until program funds are extinguished for the year, so be sure and submit your application early!
