Free trees are still available to Entergy customers in Louisiana through the Energy-Saving Trees program, but customers must reserve quickly before the 1,000 trees remaining are claimed within days.
Launched as a pilot initiative with the Arbor Day Foundation in 2011, the Energy-Saving Trees program conserves energy and reduces household electricity bills through strategic tree planting. This spring, Entergy will give away a total of 7,000 trees.
Entergy customers can reserve their free trees today at http://arborday.org/entergylouisiana. Within seconds of accessing the website, an online tool helps Entergy customers find the most strategic location for planting and estimates the annual savings that will result from the tree. Customers can reserve up to three trees per household and the program will continue until the remaining 1,000 trees are reserved.
In exchange for the free trees, customers are expected to care for the trees and plant them in the location provided by the online tool. The two-to-four-foot trees will be delivered directly to the customer at an ideal time for planting.
Entergy customers in Arkansas, Mississippi and Texas also can reserve trees today at http://arborday.org/entergy.
