Trees Forever honors Muscatine Power and Water with a 2016 Partner Award.
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (June 23, 2016) —Muscatine Power and Water was one of the Partner Award winners at Trees Forever’s Annual Celebration and Awards Dinner at The Hotel at Kirkwood in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Thursday, June 16.

Muscatine Power and Water has partnered with the local Muscatine Branching Out group and Trees Forever for 25 years.

“They have also been a generous sponsor of Trees Forever, and were one of the first municipal utilities to fund tree plantings as part of their overall energy efficiency programs,” CEO and Founding President Shannon Ramsay said.

Muscatine Power and Water supports Muscatine Branching Out’s Fall Tree program, which helps provide high quality trees at a low cost to residents. Because of their support, homeowners have enjoyed the many benefits that trees provide—including energy efficiency, shade, wildlife habitat, public health benefits and beauty.

Muscatine Power and Water has played a vital role in supporting and moving a group of volunteers forward in Muscatine,” Trees Forever Field Coordinator Hannah Howard said. “They have helped foster stewardship in Muscatine, which will have an impact to make a greener and healthier community for future generations.”
