Sibley, Iowa — Three parks and a golf course in Sibley will be getting new trees through a utility company.
Trees Forever facilitates Alliant Energy’s program. They say it helps communities plant trees for the shade they provide and the significant energy efficiency savings that result.
Jeff Jensen, Field Coordinator for Trees Forever tells us about the program
He says they’re having a ceremony on Thursday, October 8th.
The trees will provide energy efficiency benefits as they mature over the years says Jensen. He says that Sibley recognizes the importance of keeping up with tree plantings so that they have trees in all stages of growth and a healthy urban canopy. He says the diverse mix of trees means they’ll last a long time.
