Trees are a solution to many of the environmental challenges our communities are facing. They protect our homes from summer sun and winter winds — leading to energy savings of up to 30%. They also filter stormwater, sequester carbon emissions, improve our health, and beautify our neighborhoods.

Many organizations across the country are including tree distribution projects in their sustainability and energy-efficiency initiatives. Offering trees to customers and employees leads to growth of the urban canopy and demonstrates for homeowners the value of trees as a natural solution to a variety of community issues.

Community Canopy (aka Energy-Saving Trees) is a tree planting partnership administered by the Arbor Day Foundation. Developed for cities and utilities — and applicable for addressing strategic canopy development — the program empowers property owners to plant trees to save on utility costs and generate new ecosystem benefits. Through this partnership, homeowners can use a customized portal to make guided, strategic planting decisions, find educational materials, order a tree, and see their contributions to the urban canopy.

Join us to hear how you can play a role in trees for energy savings, improved air quality, reduced stormwater runoff, beautification, reduced heat island effect, a smaller carbon footprint, and the fun of building together with your community.

This presentation will walk through:

  • The benefits trees offer property owners and the overall community.
  • The interactive technology behind the Community Canopy program, including iTree’s ecosystem benefits application.
  • Strategies for including right tree/right place education, seamless execution, and environmental benefits data.
  • Success stories from utilities and municipalities that distribute trees to homeowners annually.
  • How Community Canopy can support your sustainability and energy-efficiency initiatives in a measurable way.
