Energy Saving Trees

Free Trees Available from PECO and Arbor Day Foundation

PECO is partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation to provide customers with trees to plant strategically around their homes for environmental impact and energy savings. This year marks PECO’s 10th anniversary as an Energy-Saving Trees partner.

PECO’s program has provided almost 10,000 free trees to customers. By planting trees around your home, you can add to your property value, reduce your carbon footprint, improve air quality and more effectively catch storm water runoff. When fully grown, these trees can also help reduce the amount of energy your home uses. Customers can reserve their trees now until the last week of April – act fast, as the trees go quickly! Trees can be picked up in each county on April 28th. Find more details and reserve your tree here:

The online portal allows customers to view their home and choose the correct tree species to maximize energy savings and environmental impact.

This year’s program will allow customers to pick up their trees in-person at different community sites. For a limited time, customers can also receive a 1 to 3-foot-tall seedling in a container delivered to their homes.

Only PECO customers may participate in the program.
