Tree Give-Away Part Of DP&L 'Right Tree, Right Place' Campaign
Continuing their Right Tree, Right Place program this fall, DP&L is reminding residents how important selecting the right tree is when planting close to power lines.
With both environmental and safety concerns in mind, DP&L says “trees are an important part of the environment that beautify our neighborhoods and communities,” and also says that “trees too close to power lines can become a hazard and contribute to power outages.”
By working with several area partners, the Right Tree, Right Place program also provides residents and larger communities power-line-friendly trees to plant—DP&L’s website provides a list of recommended trees for the Miami Valley and how to access their tree give-a-way programs.
To get details on how the program works, WYSO’s Jerry Kenney spoke with Holly Wiggins, director of community and corporate social responsibility program with DP&L.
