Give your lawn a fresh new addition during the Free Tree ReLeaf program. EPB has teamed up with Reflection Riding and the City of Chattanooga to offer new trees to households like yours. And best of all – it’s completely free. Mature trees provide cooling shade that can help lower your energy bills. Plus, trees help protect the environment by providing food and natural habitats for local wildlife, and reducing soil erosion, which decreases the volume of stormwater runoff.
