Join the City in our crusade to increase our tree diversity and urban tree canopy! High quality native trees (valued at approximately $60 to $120) are being made available to residents of Grimes through an exciting residential tree sale. The cost of the trees will be covered by a $30 fee paid by the resident with the remainder paid by the City. Due to City funding, all participants must be Grimes residents and must agree to plant the tree(s) on residential property within the City limits. There is a limit of up to 2 trees per household.

-All Iowans are required by law to notify the Iowa One Call System at least 48 hours (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays) prior to engaging in any type of digging or excavating. Homeowners and private residents are not exempt from making this important notice. Contact Iowa One Call by dialing 811 or by going to http://www.iowaonecall.com/homeowners/ to locate underground utilities on your property. 

-Plan for your pick up. Trees will range in height from 5'-8' at the time of pick up. 

-Note that any tree not claimed by 6:30pm will be resold or planted by the City on public property. No warranty is provided. No refunds or replacements.
