NorthWestern Energy partners with the city of Red Lodge to plant new trees on city streets

Date: Apr 29, 2021

TYPE: News

Butte, MT. – April 29, 2021 – NorthWestern Energy is now partnering with the city of Red Lodge Parks, Trees and Recreation Board to fund 75% of the cost of planting new trees in residential areas in the public right-of-ways.

Since the program launched in 2013, more than 100 trees have been planted.

“We’ve secured grants in the past to pay for about half of the $200 cost of purchasing each tree and the property owner pays the other half,” said City of Red Lodge Planning Assistant Courtney Long. “In the past, the City has relied on Resort Tax and Montana Department of Natural Resources funding. This year NorthWestern Energy stepped up to offer funds to pay for 75% of the cost of each tree, which reduces the cost the property owner pays to $50.”

NorthWestern Energy’s funding includes the company’s Employee Volunteer Program, which offers grant money for the organizations our employees serve.

“We are honored to be part of this program to add trees along the streets of Red Lodge,” said NorthWestern Energy Community Relations Manager Lisa Perry. “These trees provide shade, provide a wind break and absorb storm water. This is a great partnership to announce for Arbor Day.”

Long hopes to add 25 trees this year along Red Lodge residential streets through the program.
