The 2020 Energy-Saving Trees program is now open for orders. Get yours before they're gone!
Tipmont REMC, in partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation's Energy-Saving Trees program, is offering a limited number of free trees to Tipmont members through the Energy-Saving Trees program. Tipmont members are eligible for one free tree per membership, while supplies last. If you rent your living space, please check with your landlord prior to placing an order.
Trees can reduce your energy costs by up to 20%.
When you plant the right tree in the right place, it can help save energy and reduce utility bills. The benefits don't stop at cost savings. Trees improve air and water quality, help relieve stress, and make yards more enjoyable.
The tree ordering process uses a satellite map of your home to help show you the best place on your property to plant the tree for maximum savings. The information also estimates community savings over 20 years such as stormwater runoff capture, carbon sequestration and air pollution absorption.
About the trees
The tree you receive will be 1-3 ft. in size and in a 1 gallon pot. The available trees include Bur Oak, Eastern Redbud, Northern Red Oak, Sugar Maple, and White Dogwood.
Tipmont members can order a free tree through a simple four-step process that takes less than 10 minutes. Visit arborday.org/tipmont to get started.
