PPL Unveils Community Roots Program To Provide Free Trees To Schools, Communities, Groups

PPL Utilities recently unveiled the Community Roots Program to provide funding for a limited quantity of bare root, container and gallon pot seedlings to schools (4th grade), county and local governments, and environmentally-focused groups in its service territory.
Trees can be ordered for now for planting in Spring and Fall next year. Trees for spring 2018 need to be ordered by Oct. 25, 2017. Orders for fall 2018 must be placed by June 11, 2018. There is a one-order limit per year, per group or school.
Before you grab your shovel, remember that planting any tree should always be done in the right place, away from overhead power lines or underground utility lines.
Plus, tree recipients are reminded to always call 811 at least three business days before they dig so any underground utilities in the digging area can be marked.
For all the details, visit PPL’s Community Roots website.
