Pepco has 2,300 free trees for distribution to their customers to promote energy conservation. They are working with the Arbor Day Foundation on this project, which will provide two free trees per applicant on a first-come, first served basis through November 5th. To request your trees visit this website. Once you reserve your trees online, the Arbor Day Foundation will ship the trees to you.
To be eligible, you must be a residential customer of Pepco, you are expected to plant the trees in a strategic location, and you must care for the trees once planted. The Arbor Day website linked above has an online tool that will help you plan where to plant the trees. Once you map where you will plant the trees, the tool will calculate your estimated benefits including energy savings, cleaner air, reduced carbon dioxide emissions and improved storm water management. Yay trees!
