Starting on Arbor Day, Pepco customers can reserve one free tree per household by visiting arborday.org/pepco. Customers will be able to choose one-gallon trees in various selections, including River Birch, Eastern Redbud, Cape Myrtle and Red Maple. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and Stay at Home Orders in the District of Columbia and Maryland, all trees will be delivered to each customer’s home between four and six weeks from when an online reservation is completed. Trees will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Through the Arbor Day Foundation’s website, customers will have the power to explore interactive tools that can help them determine the best location on their property to plant their tree for energy savings benefits. Properly planted trees can provide a homeowner many benefits, such as reducing energy use through summer shading and by slowing winter winds.
