Arbor Day Grants for “Planting Idaho” Program:

The Idaho Nursery and Landscape Association (INLA), in cooperation with the Idaho Department of Lands (IDL), Avista, Rocky Mountain Power, and Idaho Power, is pleased to announce a program intended to help cities celebrate Arbor Day, plant appropriate trees for energy conservation and foster a stronger relationship between Idaho communities and the Green and Utility Industries.


In 2017, 45 Arbor Day grants in the amount of $300 will be awarded for Planting Idaho. Funding for this program is provided by the generous contributions of these Idaho utilities that have a large interest in healthy urban forests and having the right tree planted in the right place.


All Idaho communities are eligible to participate in the “Planting Idaho” program.


Idaho will celebrate Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, 2017. However, trees and planting conditions don’t honor calendars – each community choose their date to celebrate Arbor Day.
