Shade Tree Project

The Shade Tree Project is for Idaho Power’s residential customers who wish to plant shade trees at their home. Enrollment is open to a limited geographic area each spring and fall where several species of trees will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

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!

Note: Participation is limited to two trees per customer for the life of the program, and participants must have the legal right to plant trees on the property. Trees are available on a first come-first served basis.

Enrollment Is Closed
