     The benefits of this program extend far beyond personal savings. Last year's Florida initiative had a tremendous positive impact on the environment and local communities!

Planting Guide

     Energy-Saving Trees is a program that aims to save homeowners and utilities money through strategic, proactive tree planting. The program is a partnership between the Arbor Day Foundation, local forestry councils and regional utilities across the country at no cost to homeowners. Participating homes have saved up to 20% on their power bills!

Did you know?

    Trees cool the air naturally from the effects of water evaporating from leaves and from direct shade. Moisture combined with shade results in cooler air. Homes shaded by trees need less energy for cooling, which in turn means lower monthly utility bills in the summer and a reduced need for utilities to increase power generation to meet peak load demand.

Four trees planted around each home could save up to 30% on summer cooling costs. 1 Million Trees = $10 Million in Annual Energy Saving
