Thanks Chattanooga! We’re fresh out of free trees!

Due to overwhelming response, we’ve given away all of the free trees for now. But we’ll make an announcement if we’re able to do another Free Tree ReLeaf event in the future.

Sign up here to receive updates about future Free Tree ReLeaf events.

Spruce up your yard with a free tree!

At Reflection Riding starting October 28*

Free Tree ReLeaf

Get your free tree & see the benefits!

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.

A Partnership Between
Qualifications

Does everyone get a free tree?

If your home is located within the EPB service area, and you receive your electricity from EPB, then you qualify to receive a free tree for planting.* Reflection Riding staff will also verify your qualifications on site when you visit.

*Subject to availability, while supplies last

Tree Benefits Trees play a critical role in creating healthier, safer and more connected communities. Plus, they provide all kinds of tangible benefits as well!
