County Beautification: Each year, Green Scene gives funds to nonprofit groups who want to enhance their property by planting trees. Funding may be used for the purchase of trees only. Volunteers should be involved in the planting of any trees funded. Green Scene uses half of the annual Green Scene Plant Sale profits for beautification projects in Black Hawk County. Requests are due each year on the last day in February. With your application letter, include a sketch or plan of where trees will be planted, diameter of trees requested, a price quote from a nursery for cost of trees, and verification of your organization's non-profit status.
Street Trees: Green Scene uses half of the annual Green Scene Plant Sale profits for planting trees along our streets and rights-of-way. Municipalities in the county are invited at the beginning of each year to participate in the program.
Arbor Day: Area schools are invited to participate in Arbor Day by planting a tree on their grounds.
Contact us if you are interested in participating in any of our programs.
