Free trees from Entergy

TULIPTREE: Proved too much for my small yard
  • TULIPTREE: Proved too much for my small yard
A friend passed along a note on the Heights neighborhood Yahoo group. Perhaps this also came in an Entergy bill, but I never look at them.

It's a promotion with the Arbor Day Foundation to provide up to three free trees (2 to 4 feet), suitable to your home. Trees create shade, you know. That can cut electricity usage in the summer. Trees also have other environmental benefits.

Entergy will help you with advice on what type of tree to plant. I could have used that advice before the tulip poplar I planted on the south side of my house (too big and too close to the house, but a massive lightning strike took care of that) and an ornamental cherry tree (don't know what killed it).

Rewards come sooner than you might think. I got a bundle of 10 twigs in a business envelope for $1 from the Arbor Day Foundation in 1987. The silver maple, planted on my daughter's 7th birthday and nourished by her granddaddy, is now a monumental thing meaningful to us for more than its shade. (They still do that tree deal, by the way.)

The details on Entergy's tree deal:

As a part of our continued commitment to the environment, Entergy has teamed up with the Arbor Day Foundation to provide free trees to Entergy residential customers in Arkansas , Louisiana , Mississippi , New Orleans and Texas . These trees will help customers save up to 20% on summer energy bills while also helping to save the environment by providing air quality improvements, storm water reduction and carbon sequestration.

Entergy customers can reserve up to three free trees by visiting www.entergy.com/arborday. The simple online process allows you to:

1. Map your house
2. Show you the right trees for your area
3. Help you find the best place to plant them
4. Tell you how much you can expect to save
5. Reserve up to three 2-4 foot trees to be delivered to your house, compliments of Entergy

Please help us get the word out about this exciting opportunity by passing on this information to all of your contacts, including volunteers, supporters, stakeholders etc. With your help, we can engage individuals in this tree-planting initiative and demonstrate that small actions can have a profound impact on the environment and our wallets.

Thank you,
