To celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day, Colorado Natural Gas partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to offer 100 customers a free tree. Planting trees is one of the ways to reduce household heating and cooling costs and increase a home’s energy efficiency. In addition, planting trees in a yard can provide tangible community benefits like stormwater runoff reduction, improved air quality, and beautification of neighborhoods.
Customers in Pueblo West and the eastern plains were able to reserve a free tree at the end of April, and recently picked them up at two events held in each district area. In addition to giving trees to customers, CNG also sponsored 500 seedlings to be planted by the Arbor Day Foundation in Pike National Forest. These seedlings will aid in a reforestation project and allow the forest to recover faster from recent wildfires.
