temperatures increase in our region, the need for sustainable urban forests
also increases. The Sacramento Shade Program has evolved to address these
concerns by expanding to offer both deciduous and evergreen trees that can be
planted on any qualifying open area on your property, with up to 10 free trees
per property and over 30 varieties to choose from.
Trees not only cool our homes naturally and beautify our neighborhoods, but
they provide additional benefits such as producing oxygen, cleaning the air we
breathe, and storing carbon.
When you’re ready to plant your trees from SMUD,
Community Forester will assess your property, review your tree options, and
determine the best locations to plant your trees. You will have the opportunity
to ask questions and receive information about how to plant and care for your
outside Sacramento County?
the Shady Eighty Tree Guide for a list of the best trees to plant in our
region. We encourage you to support a local retail nursery to purchase trees if
you are unable to receive free shade trees through our programs.
