Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Are you looking to plant a tree or two this fall? Trees provide shade during the summer, vibrant colors in the fall, shelter through the winter, and beauty in the spring? Trees add value to your property. Trees spruce up any community and make your home a better place to live.

If you are an Alliant Energy customer anywhere in the state you have an opportunity to purchase up to two trees for only $25 each but you must act fast.

The Tama County Conservation Board, in conjunction with Alliant Energy and the Iowa DNR, is participating in Operation Releaf again this year. The last time Operation Releaf was hosted in Tama County was 2009. It may be several years until Tama County is able to participate again.

This is how the program works:
