ABCWUA Tree Care Rebate

The rebate is from the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Authority and appears as a credit on your water bill. It is a credit of up to $100 for residential work and up to $500 for businesses work done and apartment complexes and it is for ANY tree care (not removal) – Trimming, Fertilizing, Disease and Insect Control.

It’s called the Tree Care Rebate and it is a pilot which means we may only have it for one year. Receipts are required and the rebate forms are available here.

The goal is to maintain the Urban Forest in Albuquerque. The City has encouraged Xeriscaping and has since seen a decline in Trees. The rebate is calculated on reimbursing you for 25% of your overall tree care costs.

Remember your trees are valuable!
