BACKGROUND: Arbor Day is a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees. This Arbor Day, PECO is helping customers with their landscaping by offering free trees to customers through the PECO Energy-Saving Trees program. When planted in the right place, trees can help reduce energy use through summer shading and slowing cold winter winds. According to the Arbor Day Foundation, once trees are fully grown, they can lower energy costs by up to 20 percent.
