  • Rutland City residents are eligible for free trees to plant in their yard through Energy Saving Trees, an Arbor Day Foundation program. When planted properly, a single mature tree can save a homeowner up to 20% on energy costs. For homes without air conditioning, shade trees can make the home feel cooler during summer heat.

    Starting on April 29th, Rutland City residents can go to vtcommunityforestry.org/EST (click Learn More Now below) to register for up to two free trees. The online sign-up process helps guide you to the best locations to plant trees to help cool your home, reduce energy usage, and save money. You can also sign-up by phone by calling the Arbor Day Foundation at 855-234-3801.

ABOUT BROC

BROC Community Action's history spans nearly 53 years. The why of our existence has not changed for five decades. We exist to give people a chance: to allow the disadvantaged members of our communities to develop and use their capacities and abilities so they can share in the promise of this nation.

The how of BROC's existence goes back to 1964, when a notion called "community action" emerged from President Kennedy's Committee on Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Crime. After President Kennedy was assinated, President Lyndon B. Johnson took up the fight and signed the Economic Opportunity Action of 1964.
