Free Shade Tree Program

Every home and business benefits from trees. Start with shade trees to keep your home cool and save energy in the summer months. Our  Sacramento Shade Tree Program offers up to 10 free shade trees to SMUD customers. The first step is to review the trees we offer and set up an appointment with a Community Forester.
