Delmarva Power Offering Free Trees to Customers

SALISBURY, Md.– Delmarva Power is now offering 2,000 free trees to customers through "Energy-Saving Trees," an Arbor Day Foundation program that helps conserve energy and reduce energy bills through strategic tree planting. Delmarva Power customers can reserve their free trees at www.arborday.org/delmarva. The program will continue until all 2,000 trees are reserved. The two-to-four foot tall trees will be delivered directly to customers at an ideal time for planting.

An online tool helps customers estimate the annual energy savings that will result from planting trees in the most strategic location near their homes or businesses. Customers can reserve up to two trees and are expected to care for and plant them in the location provided by the online tool. The types of trees offered include Sugar Maple, River Birch, Hackberry, American Beech, Bald Cypress, White Dogwood and Washington Hawthorn.

The "Energy-Saving Trees" online tool was created by the Arbor Day Foundation and the Davey Institute, a division of Davey Tree Expert Co., and uses peer-reviewed scientific research from the USDA Forest Service's i-Tree software to calculate estimated benefits. In addition to providing approximate energy savings, the tool also estimates the trees' other benefits, including cleaner air, reduced carbon dioxide emissions and improved storm water management.

Arbor Day representatives estimate within 20 years the 2,000 mature trees will result in more than $380,000 in energy savings.
