Trees for Tucson Taking Applications

Trees for Tucson, a program of Tucson Clean & Beautiful, is accepting applications for low-cost trees for delivery in the popular fall planting period. To qualify, residents must be in the Tucson Electric Power Co. or Trico Electric Cooperative electric service area, and agree to plant the trees within 15 feet of the west, south or east side of the home. Trees are delivered within approximately six to eight weeks, and will be at least three to five feet tall. Instructions for tree planting and care are provided at the time of delivery.

Trees for Tucson was established in 1989 to educate the community about the benefits of planting and properly maintaining trees to increase energy efficiency via decreased energy costs, beautifying homes, reduced use of nonrenewable fossil fuels, minimizing urban heat islands created by manmade surfaces, increased wildlife habitat, reduced air and water pollution, reduced stormwater runoff and erosion and mitigating carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Tucson Electric Power customers may print an application online at or call 520-791-3109 to receive a mailed or faxed form. Trico Electric Cooperative members may request trees online at or call 520-744-2944, extension 1605, for assistance.
