Thank you to our ReLeaf Partners!

Your opportunity to adopt high-quality, low-cost trees has been made possible by our ReLeaf partners, whose support has offset the full price of your tree. We would like to thank our ReLeaf partners for their support of the ReLeaf Cedar Rapids Plan which will make a significant difference in building back a stronger, more resilient tree canopy following the devastating 2020 derecho. 

Terms and Conditions

Reserved trees must be picked up Sunday, May 1 between 9:00 a.m. and Noon during your selected timeslot. Trees not picked up by the Noon deadline will be forfeited and redistributed. Tree species are subject to change: If your selected tree is not delivered from the supplier, it may be substituted for another species.

By adopting a tree, you agree to plant it at your Cedar Rapids residence within one week of pickup. Please visit the City of Cedar Rapids website here for guidance on city right-of-way planting. You also agree to provide the tree with continued care to the best of your ability. Need guidance? Download our step-by-step planting guide.
