Energy-Saving Trees 

Hanover Parks and Recreation is partnering with Liberty Utilities and the Arbor Day Foundation to recognize and celebrate Hanover's 40 years of Tree City USA accomplishments.  We are offering one free tree sponsored by Liberty Utilities to Hanover/Etna customers through Energy-Saving Trees, an Arbor Day foundation program that helps conserve energy and reduce energy bills through strategic tree planting. 

 

Liberty Utilities customers can reserve their free trees using the Arbor Day Foundation's online tool that helps customers estimate the annual energy savings that will result from planting trees in the most strategic location near their homes or businesses.  Customers can choose a Serviceberry, Magnolia, Sweetgum or Tuliptree and are expected to care for and plant them in the location provided by the online tool.  These varieties were chosen to add beauty to the landscape and attract native songbirds and pollinators. 

 

The program will continue until all 100 trees are reserved.  The 2-4 ft. tall trees will be available for pickup on Saturday, May 11th at Pine Knolls Cemetery in Hanover, 9am to 12pm.
