Millions of Texas trees have been lost because of the ongoing drought and the 2012 North Texas tornadoes. The cost of safely removing the dead trees, caring for distressed trees, and planting as many new trees as possible in the stricken areas will be millions of dollars. The good news? There’s an easy way you can help.
Thanks to our partner eVgo, you can participate in the EVs for Trees promotion to help re-green Texas! Test drive an electric vehicle now through December 1st at a participating dealership, and the dealer will donate $25 to Texas Trees Foundation (North Texas) or Trees for Houston (Houston).
As an exclusive offer to our customers, we will contribute an additional $25 for each Green Mountain customer who takes an EV for a spin. If you test drive both the 100% electric Nissan LEAF and the Mitsubishi i, you can raise up to $75!
Just download a voucher at www.evsfortrees.com and visit a participating dealership in Houston or North Texas. Present your form to the Nissan or Mitsubishi representative and tell them you’re a Green Mountain customer.
The trees planted by Trees for Houston and Texas Trees Foundation will help clean the air and water, and also help preserve the fertile topsoil from being blown away during the current drought – the worst we’ve had in 50 years.
