It’s tree planting season!
TreeFolks, a local non-profit organization, is offering free trees to our community through its NeighborWoods program. Planting trees decreases energy bills, provides cooling shade during our hot summers, and makes our neighborhood more beautiful. Participation in the program is completely free. The only ‘catch’ is that you have to plant and care for the trees.
To get a free tree for your house, come to one of TreeFolks’ upcoming free tree giveaway events. Trees are available at the events on a first come, first served basis, one per person. If you can’t make it to one of the events, you can join the waiting list to request to have trees delivered right to your door (also free). All Austin Energy customers are eligible and residents within Austin Full Purpose Jurisdiction (click “I want to… find my jurisdiction”).
