Power of Trees Program
Power of Trees is a community-focused program designed to raise awareness about the positive impacts trees have on our homes, our communities and the environment.
When placed and planted correctly, trees not only contribute to a beautiful landscape, but they also help shade and cool homes and businesses. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, properly placed trees can lower your energy costs by up to 20 percent.
Trees also consume carbon dioxide. An average tree absorbs about one ton of CO2 during the course of its lifetime — about the same amount saved in one year by driving a hybrid car.
Power of Trees is about more than just planting trees; it's about spreading knowledge that trees make our communities more environmentally friendly. It also teaches us how trees should be planted and maintained so their benefits are long term.
