Waterloo Leisure Services

Leisure Services has partnered with MidAmerican Energy and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources again this year in the Plant Some Shade program. Trees are available for purchase by MidAmerican Energy customers for $30/tree (Max. of 2 trees/ household). There are a total of 225 trees available this year on a first come first serve basis. Once purchased the trees will be available for pickup on May 3 at Byrnes Park between 4 and 6pm. This is a great opportunity for homeowners to purchase great trees at a reasonable price.

Feel free to pass the attached tree order form on to MidAmerican customers that may be interested.

The order form can also be found online at the following link. Click on Waterloo site and you can find the order form. Within the order form you can click on each of the tree species and get a detailed description of each tree.
