Shade Tree Project

Spring 2023 Enrollment Is Closed

About the Shade Tree Program

The Shade Tree program is for Idaho Power customers who wish to plant a shade tree to help reduce energy required to cool their home. It is open to a limited geographic area each spring and fall. Several species are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Participation is limited to two trees per address for the life of the program.

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 percent or more!
