Free shade trees from RPU are back!Riverside Public Utilities (RPU) is once again offering its customers a chance to pick up a free shade tree by simply redeeming the coupon on the back of their March 2011 RPU billing statements at one of four participating Riverside nurseries.

Now in its tenth year, the Free Shade Tree program promotes the planting of shade trees that can help customers reduce their summer cooling costs while beautifying the city and providing environmental benefits.

Through its March free tree promotions and its year-round Tree Power program, which offers customers a chance to receive up to $125 in rebates on up to five additional shade trees each calendar year, more than 87,000 trees have been planted.

Annually, the shade trees planted to date save more than 13.7 million kilowatt hours of electricity, and offset over 17.2 million pounds of green house gases.  RPU hopes to reach the goal of planting 100,000 shade trees by the end of this year’s program.

Customers will have until June 30, 2011 to redeem their March utility bill coupons good for one free shade tree (up to $25 in value) at the following locations only: A&M Nursery, 10333 Arlington Avenue; Louie’s Nursery, 16310 Porter Avenue; Parkview Nursery, 4377 Chicago Avenue; and Parkview Nursery 3841 Jackson Street.
