The Iowa DNR is encouraging Iowans looking for a cost-effective and eye-pleasing way to reduce home heating and cooling costs and storm water runoff to participate in Operation ReLeaf – a residential tree planting program that promotes energy and environmental conservation.

This spring the program will offer about 2,380 landscaping trees to Alliant Energy customers at reduced rates.

The program is funded by Alliant Energy and administered by the Iowa DNR Forestry Bureau with assistance from local partners.
