Registration for popular Energy-Saving Trees Program, which helps

Rhode Islanders save energy and money, opens September 17th

PROVIDENCE – The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) is teaming up with the Arbor Day Foundation to give away 1,200 trees as part of the State’s Energy-Saving Trees Program. Now in its seventh season, the program helps Rhode Islanders save energy and lower their utility bills by strategically planting trees on their property. 

 

“We’re pleased to join with the Arbor Day Foundation again this fall to offer free trees to Rhode Islanders,” said DEM Director Janet Coit. “The Energy-Saving Trees program is extremely popular and most trees are spoken for within days of registration opening, so be sure to register early! Planting a tree in the right place can improve air quality, sequester carbon, and help manage stormwater runoff. It’s a terrific way for residents to reduce their energy costs today and in the years to come, and a tangible way to stand up to climate change.”
