Tree Pickup And Plant­ing Event Set For Satur­day In Good­man

McDonald County Press - - COUNTY -

The Em­pire Dis­trict Elec­tric Com­pany will be host­ing a tree pickup and plant­ing event at Good­man City Hall from 12 to 3 p.m. on Satur­day, Nov. 4. Cus­tomers who reg­is­tered for Em­pire’s En­ergy-Sav­ing Trees pro­gram, re­ceived a con­fir­ma­tion and se­lected Good­man as their de­liv­ery point, will be able to pick up their com­pli­men­tary tree dur­ing the event.

A tree plant­ing will also take place, and the public is en­cour­aged to at­tend and take ad­van­tage of demon­stra­tions on proper plant­ing, mulching and se­lect­ing the right tree for the right lo­ca­tion.

This is the sec­ond year Em­pire has part­nered with the Arbor Day Foun­da­tion to of­fer the En­ergy-Sav­ing Trees pro­gram to cus­tomers. The pro­gram is an on­line, re­search-based tool in­tended to help home­own­ers and util­ity com­pa­nies save en­ergy and money by strate­gi­cally plant­ing trees.

For the sev­enth con­sec­u­tive year, the Arbor Day Foun­da­tion has rec­og­nized Em­pire as a Tree Line USA Util­ity for demon­strat­ing best prac­tices in util­ity ar­bori­cul­ture. To re­ceive this spe­cial des­ig­na­tion, Em­pire fol­lows qual­ity tree-care stan­dards, pro­vides an­nual worker train­ing, and par­tic­i­pates in tree plant­ing, public ed­u­ca­tion and tree-based en­ergy con­ser­va­tion ef­forts.
