Roseville Shade Tree Program


Made in the Shade

Smart landscaping can make a big difference in the energy efficiency and comfort of your home. Carefully positioned shade trees can reduce solar heat gain and help to lower your energy bills as a result.

Roseville Electric Utility, your community-owned power provider, recognizes the value urban trees bring to our community. We offer up to $50 in rebates for qualifying shade trees and provide our residents with FREE consultations with experts from Roseville Urban Forest Foundation (RUFF).

When shading your home, the size, shape and location of your shade tree can make a difference. That’s where our specialists come in. Professionals from Roseville Urban Forest Foundation can advise you on what kind of trees to plant and how and where to plant them. RUFF experts are also able to offer vital information on basic tree care and proper watering techniques.

Consultations are available by phone using online images of your property or in person. Our goal is to provide a convenient way for you to meet with urban tree experts to help you protect your living investments. To make an appointment for a consultation with Roseville Urban Forest Foundation, email info@rosevilletree.org or call (916) 250-2902.
