Shade Tree Project

Fall 2022 Enrollment Is Closed

Shade trees offer many benefits, including increased comfort, enhanced property values and improvements to air and water quality. Shade trees, when planted in the right location, can even help reduce energy used for summer cooling by 15% or more!

The Shade Tree Project is for Idaho Power’s residential customers who wish to plant a shade tree at their home. Enrollment is open to a limited geographic area each spring and fall with several species available on a first-come, first-served basis. Participation is limited to two trees per customer for the life of the program.
