Regreen Springfield is partnering with the Massachusetts Department of EnergyResources, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and the City of Springfield in an effort to plant trees in your yard that can help to reduce energy consumption in your own home. This program is available to you at no cost, and will provide you with one or more trees in your yard that will help to reduce your energy consumption… saving you money, while providing environmental benefits.
The correct placement of a tree near your residence can help to reduce the amount of energy needed to cool, and in many cases, heat your home. Simple benefits, such as providing shade over your air conditioner can provide up to a 20% efficiency improvement. Other direct benefits can be obtained by planting trees, and Regreen Springfield hopes to plant over 750 trees on private property this summer.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: No more trees are available for this summer’s planting season. This free tree planting program has reached its goal of finding locations to plant 750 mature shade trees within the tornado affected area of Springfield. Thank you for your overwhelming support for this initiative. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list for trees that might be available at a later date, please Click Here.
If you have had your appointment with our team of arborists, you new tree(s) should be planted soon. All trees will be planted by August 20, 2012. Please call 413/285-3056 for additional information.
Funding for this initiative is made possible by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, with additional support provided by the Massachusetts Dept. of Conservation & Recreation, the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and Rebuild Western Massachusetts.
