Plant trees, get utility credits

More than 40 tree species, including sourwood, red maple and green ash have been selected as part of the national Tree Power Program to help beautify the Manassas community, increase home value and improve air quality.
Manassas City residents can plant these trees on their property to get utility credits. Ten dollars will be credited to customers’ utility accounts for each tree that is planted and approved by the Manassas City horticulturist. For details, go to www.manassascity.org or call 703-257-8267.
The National Tree Power Program is part of a nationwide public power program to help improve the environment and reduce energy costs. Trees help improve air quality, provide shade in the summer and help break the wind in winter. The program is offered all year. Customers can pick up a Tree Power brochure with a validation card attached and a full list of approved trees. Once an approved tree is planted, customers can mail in the validation card with their tree purchase receipt to the Utilities department, the city horticulturist will inspect the planting for his approval, and then the customer’s account will be credited $10 per tree.
The City of Manassas has been designated as a Tree City USA member since 1990.
