Energy-Saving Trees Program


The Energy-Saving Trees program is a partnership between Redding Electric Utility and the City's Community Services Department. Though the program is now closed, we were able to give away 4,500 shade trees to Redding residents. Thank you for taking part in our program!

Explore our trees below and find out how to take care of yours:

This program is designed to produce energy-saving shade for City of Redding residents to lower their power bill and reduce contributions to greenhouse gas emissions. This effort is funded by the Redding Electric Utility as a public benefit program.
