  • Trees and other vegetation for habitat restoration or enhancement

  • Plants for pollinator gardens

  • Plants of cultural significance to Indigenous Nations (qualifying plants are at the discretion of the applying Nation, so long as plants’ mature height meet our requirements if planted in proximity to power lines)
