Entergy Corp. is providing 10,000 free trees to its customers in Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas to help them save energy.
The trees, offered on a first-come, first-serve basis, are part of the Arbor Day Foundation’s Energy-Saving Trees program which hopes to conserve energy through strategic tree planting. The foundation says trees provide shade and thus helps lower utility bills.
The trees can be reserved using an online tool —http://www.entergy.com/arborday — that estimates the amount of energy each tree will save in different locations.
Some types of trees available include sourwood, bald cypress, red maple and crape myrtle.
