Oncor customers can receive as many as two free trees from the utility, and an interactive satellite map from arborday.org will show you where to plant them.
There are 8,000 trees available on a first-come, first-served basis, and six varieties that do well in our climate: Burr Oak, Cedar Elm, Chinkapin Oak, Mexican White Oak, Pecan and Texas Redbud.
Type your address into the interactive map, and the website will calculate the best place to plant a tree on your property to achieve the most energy-saving benefit and avoid Oncor power lines. The website even states the best type of tree to plant and how much energy savings its shade can provide your home.
The trees will be delivered for planting this coming fall.
