Planting a tree can help you save on your monthly electric costs. Strategically placed trees are an effective way to save energy by helping to reduce your heating and cooling costs. Shade trees cool the outer wall temperature of your home by as much as 20 degrees, saving your air conditioner and lowering your summer electric bill.
As a member, you can purchase up to 3 low-cost, low-water use trees through Trico's Tree Program. Trees cost $15, will be at least 3 feet tall and are delivered directly to your home by Trees for Tucson (some restrictions apply).
