Water Into Trees

About the Program

You can help the City of Durham plant more trees by making a donation to the “Water Into Trees” program through your water bill. Your donation through this optional program will be used exclusively by Durham’s urban forestry program to purchase additional trees for streets, parks, and green spaces.
The City of Durham is a qualified organization to receive charitable contributions which may be deductible for tax purposes. Consult the IRS Publication 526 (PDF) or your tax adviser to determine if your donation is eligible based on your individual circumstances.

Benefits of Trees

Trees provide Durham residents with clean water and air, healthy places for outdoor activities and exercise, energy conservation, and increased property values.
