Shade Tree Project

Spring 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. 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 customer for the life of the program. Spring 2022 enrollment is closed.
