Shade Tree Rebate Program

Trees offer so many benefits in so many ways. They produce oxygen and clean our air; they filter our water and prevent soil erosion; they provide food and habitat for birds and wildlife; and they add grace, beauty, and value to our homes and communities. They also provide valuable shade and can significantly reduce energy costs when planted strategically around your home, which is why the City now offers rebates to encourage planting shade trees.

The program is open to existing single-family residential San Marcos Electric Utility (SMEU) customers with an account in good standing.
