Get a Free Tree from SMUD
By djsheryl on September 9, 2022
Have you been desperately searching for ways to cool your home down during our extreme heat the last couple of weeks? One thing that has been scientifically proven to help is shade trees! Not only can they help keep the temperature in your house down, but they can also help save energy and money. That’s why SMUD is giving away free shade trees to customers.
If you’re interested, you can apply for an appointment through the Sacramento Tree Foundation.
“We will contact you to schedule an appointment with a community forester. Assessment appointments are done virtually using a screen-sharing service (it’s fun and easy), or in-person if your property qualifies,” the foundation says.
The community forester will pick the best spots for the tree and what trees can be planted at the property. The tree will then be taken to the property with stakes and ties. The resident or business owner will also be given information on how to plant and care for the tree.
