01/07/2013 ~ Keys Energy Services (KEYS) will host its 17th Tree Giveaway on Saturday, April 20th, at 8:30 a.m. at KEYS’ Service Building in Key West (1001 James Street) and KEYS’ Cudjoe Electrical Substation (MM 22, Oceanside). The giveaway is on a first-come, first-serve basis for all KEYS customers, who will have their choice of two free native shade trees while supplies last. Additional details about the Tree Giveaway, including a listing of the trees that will be given out, will be made available in the weeks leading up to the event.

KEYS’ Tree Giveaway, which began in 1994, is part of a nationwide public power program called TREE POWER sponsored by the American Public Power Association (APPA). The national goal is to plant one tree for every public power customer for a total of 16-million trees. KEYS received the Golden Tree Award from the APPA for reaching its goal of planting more than 27,500 trees, or one for every customer it serves, in 2004. To-date, KEYS has given away over 36,000 native shade trees to its customers to help them offset energy costs by harnessing the shade such trees provide to cool their homes.

APPA is the national service organization representing more than 2,000 community-and state-owned electric utilities that provide electricity to 43 million Americans.

Beginning with the 2009 Tree Giveaway, KEYS began holding the event on odd-numbered years. The 18th Tree Giveaway is scheduled to take place in 2015.
