Glendale’s Tree Power Program: Enhancing Energy Efficiency with Shade Trees

Glendale’s Tree Power Program offers residential customers a chance to enhance energy efficiency by providing up to three free shade trees for planting on their properties. By strategically planting shade trees, homeowners can significantly reduce their air conditioning costs by 10% to 50%. This initiative aims to promote energy conservation while beautifying neighborhoods.

Participation in the program is straightforward. Residents can select up to three shade trees from a list of 30 different varieties offered by the program. These trees are chosen for their ability to provide effective shading once fully matured. Interested individuals can contact the program arborist at (818) 957-4425 to enroll or submit their information for a callback.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to enjoy the benefits of shade trees through the Tree Power Program:

  1. Choose a tree from the provided list that best suits your preferences and property.
  2. Collaborate with the program arborist to determine the ideal planting location, ensuring optimal shade coverage.
  3. Receive the selected shade trees, which come semi-matured and include stakes, ties, arbor guards, and an instructional DVD on planting and maintenance – all at no cost.

The program operates on a first-come, first-served basis, and eligibility may be subject to change or termination based on available funds. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to create cooler, more energy-efficient homes while contributing to the city’s green initiative.
