Residential Street Tree Rebate

Thank you for your interest in the City of Woodland's Tree Rebate Program. Under this program, the City will reimburse the purchase price of the residential street tree(s) up to $75 per address.

Why Plant Street Trees?

Trees cool hot streets, sidewalks, and homes, resulting in significant energy savings. They filter harmful carbon dioxide from the air and replace it with life-giving oxygen. Trees also give shelter to wildlife, muffle noise, and provide privacy. Overall, trees increase property values, add beauty and grace to our community, and become a priceless heritage for future generations.

How Does the Resident Street Tree Rebate work?

Read the following rebate conditions, and use the information on the Master Street List (PDF) to choose the best tree for your yard. Trees are to be planted behind the sidewalk in your front yard to qualify for the tree rebate. Participation in the Rebate Program is easy - just complete the following steps:

  1. Buy your tree
    Be sure to save the original receipt from your purchase to submit with your rebate application.
  2. Plant your tree
    Refer to the Planting and Staking Detail (PDF) for our suggested planting method. If you want to have a tree planted in the city maintenance strip call 530-661-2000. The city will assist you with the planting of a maintenance strip tree at no cost to you.
  3. Complete the Tree Rebate Application
    Return the application and proof of purchase, to:
    Tree Rebate - Woodland Community Services Department
    2001 East Street, Woodland, CA 95776
