Dan's Garden: Partners in Planting
There are still quite a few people in Bismarck and Mandan that might not know about what we call Partners in Planting, which involves the city forestry departments in both cities.
If you have a house where you want to plant shade trees on the boulevard, not only do you get a rebate, $50 dollars a tree in Mandan, and they still have money, and in Bismarck, they still have money to give away this year, you can get up to $400 or $500 per property, maybe up even to $100 per tree.
The permit is free, we can help you get it, or you can call the forestry department in either town, and the trees are on sale and it’s a good deal. It adds value to your house, it gets you nice trees, you’ll get shade in the summer, blocks the wind some in the winter, and it’s just a good thing for the city and makes our cities look even better.
So if you’re thinking about planting, and the times is really good now because the weather is cool and they’re going to root in on time, think about planting trees on your boulevard in Bismarck and Mandan because you can save a lot of money.
Until next week, good gardening.
