Pepco Provides 1,500 Free Trees to Maryland and D.C. Customers
It’s the fifth year of the Pepco-Arbor Day Foundation partnership that provides two trees per household while supplies last.
This year, the free trees are more developed as they’re lightly branched and 2 to 4 feet in height. The Energy-Saving Trees program helps customers conserve energy and reduces household electricity bills through strategic tree planting.
Pepco customers can reserve up to two free trees by visiting www.arborday.org/pepco or by calling 1.855.670.2771.
The types of trees offered are Eastern redbud, Crapemyrtle, Northern red oak, red maple and river birch, which will be delivered directly to the customer at an ideal time for planting.
“Our Energy-Saving Trees program is another way that Pepco is committed to helping our customers continue to conserve energy as well as improve the environment,” said Donna Cooper, Pepco region president. “By strategically planting the right trees in the right places, we help maintain a balance between the aesthetics of the tree canopy and the reliability of the electric distribution system while also offering our customers energy reductions.”
