Twelve Wisconsin Towns To Plant 500 Trees

Alliant Energy named 12 Wisconsin communities, including Beloit, Edgerton, and Poynette, to receive grants totaling nearly $60,000. The money comes from the Alliant Energy Foundation’s Community Tree Planting program. It’s part of the One Million Trees initiative.  

“The Community Tree Planting program grants awarded will help these Wisconsin communities achieve tree restoration goals, improve energy efficiency, and provide environmental benefits for generations to come,” says David de Leon, president of Alliant Energy’s Wisconsin energy company.

Alliant Energy partners with Trees Forever to help communities develop, select, and plant trees. A tree expert helps communities select the best species for their areas. They also create care and maintenance plans to make sure the new trees have long, healthy lives.   

Across Wisconsin, communities can apply for grants up to $5,000 to fund new trees.
