Pepco and the Arbor Day Foundation are offering free trees to help you conserve energy. Trees are available on a first-come, first-serve basis from March 20 through June 6, while supplies last. Distribution is limited to two, 2-to-4 foot trees per customer. To get your free trees, visit www.arborday.org/Pepco today.
Properly planted trees help reduce energy use through summer shading and by slowing winter winds. As your trees grow, they will have the potential to lower energy bills by 15 to 30 percent.
To help you plant your tree in the right place, the Arbor Day Foundation offers you an online mapping tool that will:
- Map your house
- Show you the right trees for your area
- Locate the best place to plant them
- Calculate how much you can expect to save
