Spring 2024 Residential Tree Program
Waterloo residents are eligible to purchase one or two trees for $20 each.
Special pricing is made possible by a generous donation from The Young Family Foundation.

  •  Advanced purchase is required and is limited to two trees per Waterloo household to ensure that many residents have the opportunity to participate. If additional trees are available on distribution day, they will be released for purchase at 4 pm on a first-come, first-served basis until all are sold.
  • Trees must be picked up Thursday, May 9, 2024, from 4 to 5:30 pm at address above. Trees not picked up by 5:30 pm on distribution day will be considered donations to Waterloo Leisure Services.
  • Trees are nonrefundable and are under no warranty and/or guarantee. Exchanges/substitutions will not be accepted.
  • In exchange for participation in this program, the resident agrees that Waterloo Leisure Services shall not be liable in contract, tort and strict liability or otherwise for any damages arising out of the administration of this program. The City of Waterloo makes no warranties, expressed or implied, with respect to any material supplied under this program.

Deciduous and low-growing trees are 3-10 feet tall and conifers are a minimum of 3 feet tall when received. Please consider size at maturity when making your selection(s). For maximum energy efficiency, shade trees should be planted within 30 feet of the east and west sides and conifers should be planted as windbreaks along the north and west sides of your home. Before planting your tree(s), Iowa law requires you to call 811 at least two business days before digging to make certain there are no utility lines or other equipment buried underground.
