BGE, through a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, provides a limited number of free trees to BGE customers to help reduce energy bills and improve community tree canopies.
Scientists agree that properly planted trees could help to reduce your energy use through summer shading and slowing cold winter winds. As your trees grow, they can lower your energy bills by up to 15 to 30 percent.
For a limited time, free trees will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to BGE customers who agree to plant them in safe, energy-saving locations.
