Trees for Energy Savings

"We wish to thank you for the beautiful linden tree which was planted in our front yard several months ago. It is straight and tall - much nicer than we expected for a free tree. Our tree is thriving and will provide lots of shade in the future. We will enjoy watching it grow." - Mr. & Mrs. Elsen
