Tree Power!


Did you know that trees can save you energy and money? We have a program that offers cash incentives for planting shade trees to conserve energy.

Properly planted around your home, shade trees can lower your heating and cooling costs. Trees that shade the south or west side of the building can reduce air conditioning costs in summer. When the leaves fall in the winter, the bare trees allow sunlight to warm your home.

That’s not all the good news. Trees also supply oxygen, absorb carbon dioxide and cleanse the air. And they enhance the beauty and value of your home.

To help you enjoy the many benefits of trees, we’re offering a cash rebate equal to 50% of the purchase price (up to $50 per tree) when you buy and plant deciduous trees. Certain restrictions apply.

The rewards of adding trees to your property have never been greater!
