Every home and business benefits from trees. Start with shade trees to keep your home cool and save energy in the summer months. Our
Sacramento Shade Tree Program offers up to 10 free shade trees to SMUD customers. The first step is to review the trees we offer and set up an appointment with a Community Forester.
Schools and parks are not complete without trees. Trees protect children from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays and can have a positive effect on children's ability to concentrate. They make parks places for contemplation, recreation, physical activity, camaraderie, and relaxation. Help us bring trees to your parks, schools, and streets.
