Energy Saving Trees

Free Trees Available Now from Taking Root

We’d like to share a unique opportunity for you to receive a FREE tree for your yard.

Through a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation’s Community Canopy program, we are giving away 250 trees to help homeowners in our community lower energy costs, filter air and water, reduce stormwater runoff, slow climate change, and green our neighborhoods. This is an exclusive offer for residents of Lincoln Heights, Lockland, Reading, and Woodlawn.

You can reserve your free tree today at

On this site, you can use the online tool to determine the location in your yard to plant your new free tree for maximum savings on your energy bill. This tool will also estimate the annual savings that will result from the tree. In exchange for the free tree, you are expected to plant them in the location provided by the online tool and provide ongoing care.

PICK-UP EVENTS: Your 5 gallon (2- to 4-foot) tree will be available for pick-up at Gorman Heritage Farm on either April 21st or April 28th.
