DP&L volunteers planting utility-friendly trees in Wright Dunbar neighborhood as part of DP&L’s Right Tree Right Place program.

DP&L also has a "Right Tree, Right Place" program underway that offers homeowners tree planting assistance, and working with area nurseries, they have a limited amount of trees to give away.  To find out how that program has progressed in the last year, we spoke to Mary Ann Kabel, the director of corporate communications.


  Year two of DP&L's Right Tree, Right Place program will begin on Arbor Day, April 29th, 2016.
