Kentucky Power and community partners to distribute free trees

ASHLAND, Ky. – In celebration of Earth Day and Arbor Day, Kentucky Power is giving away thousands of low-growth tree saplings to customers on Saturday.

The saplings will be available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last beginning at 9 a.m. in Ashland, Hazard, Pikeville and Whitesburg. There is no charge to customers for the trees. Four varieties will be available: Grey Dogwood, Silky Dogwood, Hazelnut and Wild Plum. Supplies are limited, so customers should plan to pick up their saplings early. Customers may not reserve trees or place orders in advance.

“Low-growth trees are great for landscaping around homes,” said Dusty Roll, Kentucky Power’s region forestry supervisor. “These trees typically have nice shapes and will not grow so tall that they interfere with overhead utility lines or structures. Plus, planting trees is an excellent way to improve the environment, add beauty to the landscape and improve air quality.”

In Ashland, Kentucky Power has teamed up with the City of Ashland and Ashland Community and Technical College to combine their annual tree giveaways at a central location this year. Additional varieties will be available, including some hardwoods. In addition, Kentucky Power foresters and school experts will provide education on planting the right tree in the right place to avoid interfering with overhead power lines.

“Ashland Community and Technical College is proud to be honored with a Tree Campus USA recognition for the third year in a row,” said Paul Seasor, director of maintenance and operations at ACTC. “Part of how we earn that recognition is by service learning projects like the tree giveaway. Other ways we meet Tree Campus requirements are maintaining a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan and dedicated annual expenditures for a campus tree program. We are thrilled to be partnering with Kentucky Power on this year’s giveaway.”
