Nearly 2,000 trees sold by DNR in Iowa spring planting effort

DES MOINES (AP) — The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says a program designed to plant new trees in Iowa this spring distributed nearly 2,000 trees to homeowners.

Operation ReLeaf is a cooperative effort between the DNR’s forestry bureau, Interstate Power and Light Co., an Alliant Energy subsidiary, and local organizations. They offered eight residential tree distribution sites throughout the state this spring, selling more than 1,950 trees. The program promotes long-term energy and natural resource conservation. Alliant Energy residential customers may purchase landscaping trees for $25 each. They typically cost between $65 and $125.

Additional trees will be distributed in Clinton, Dallas, Des Moines, Fayette, Linn, Marshall, Washington and Worth counties this fall.

Order forms will be available online in July at Alliant Energy’s Operation ReLeaf website.
