As part of a national Arbor Day Foundation program called "Energy Saving Trees," Atlantic City Electric in New Jersey is offering 2,000 free trees to customers. The idea is that planting them strategically near houses and businesses can help reduce energy bills.
An online tool developed by the foundation and TCIA member company Davey Institute uses Forest Service research to calculate the benefits of planting trees, including cleaner air and improved storm-water management. The two- to four-foot-tall trees - including sugar maple, river birch, hackberry, American beech, bald cypress, white dogwood, and Washington hawthorn - will be delivered directly to customers.
