The one-gallon, 4-foot potted tree will be delivered directly to customers while supplies last. Customers can choose from American beech, baldcypress, river birch and white dogwood.

“We are pleased to once again support the Energy-Saving Trees program which benefits the environment and helps beautify the communities we serve,” said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. “This program can also help our customers save money on their air-conditioning expenses since trees provide shade for the home in the summer months.”
