Black Hills Energy is dedicated to raising knowledge and awareness about the positive impacts trees have on our homes, communities, and environment. We are pleased to offer two different programs in our states that collectively support our efforts to harness the benefits of trees.

If you're one of our customers in Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota or Wyoming, you can reserve one free tree through our partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation

The program kicks off Earth Day, April 22, 2021 and supplies are limited.

Planting your Energy Saving Tree


The video below provides detailed information about what you can expect and helps you better understand where to plan trees on your property for maximum energy savings.

A well-placed tree can help your home or business save energy by providing shade from the hot sun and windbreak from the cold breeze. Trees not only help reduce the amount of energy your home or business requires, but also add to your property value and provide habitat for local wildlife. Beyond that, they help reduce your carbon footprint, improve air quality, and more effectively catch storm water runoff.
