Get Free Shade Trees for Your Home or Business
Sacramento County residents are eligible to receive up to 10 free shade trees through the Sacramento Shade Tree program thanks to our partnership with the
Sacramento Municipal Utility District
Sacramento Shade customers can choose from over 30 trees. Deciduous trees shade your home during the summer and lose their leaves to let the sun warm your home in the winter. This helps you save energy all year.
You can also review our planting guidelines to learn more about selecting the right tree for your space.
Now there are even more ways to get your free SMUD shade trees!
If you live outside of Sacramento County or don't have room to plant energy savings shade trees, we encourage you to visit a local retail nursery to purchase your tree(s). Use our Shady Eighty Tree Guide (.pdf) to help you choose a tree that will grow well in our climate and provide the greatest benefits.
