MidAmerican Energy Company customers in Iowa are eligible to purchase trees for $30 each (with the remaining cost funded through a grant from MidAmerican Energy). Purchase is initially limited to two trees per household to ensure all customers have the opportunity to purchase trees.
Advanced purchase is required. In the event that additional trees are available on distribution day, they will be released for purchase at 8:30 a.m. on a first-come first-served basis until all trees are sold. Trees must be picked up Saturday, May 5, between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. at the Hoover State Office Building south parking lot, intersection of E. 14th Street and E. Court Avenue in Des Moines. Any trees not picked up by 10:30 a.m. on distribution day will be considered a donation to the Great Outdoors Foundation. Trees are nonrefundable. Exchanges will not be accepted and plant material is under no warranty and/or guarantee.
Online tree orders and payments are required. If you need assistance with this ordering process, please contact Dawn O’Connor at 515-967-3895. Please retain your order confirmation receipt and bring it with you on distribution day to claim your trees.
