Free Shade Tree Program - Status Update
The Lodi Shade Tree Pilot Program, a partnership between Lodi Electric Utility and nonprofit Tree Lodi, provides free trees and planting instructions to eligible customers to help keep their homes cooler during hot summers and reduce energy bills.
All 500 trees available in the first round of the program were reserved within several weeks of the announcement that went out to Lodi Electric customers in their monthly statement.
Tree Lodi hopes to expand the program in 2022, pending funding by Lodi Electric Utility in the next budget year that begins July 1. Tree Lodi is an all-volunteer organization that advocates for the City's urban forest through citizen involvement, education, planting, and maintaining public space trees.
