Tree Benefits Estimator

This energy calculator is provided by the American Public Power Association and was developed by the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD).

"The APPA Tree Benefits Estimator Was Designed to Help You This Web-based application will help APPA member utilities quantify and track the benefits of planting shade trees. It estimates the amount of energy savings (KWh saved), capacity savings (KW saved) and carbon and CO2 sequestration (lbs) resulting from mature trees planted in urban and suburban settings. The Tree Benefits Estimator can be used by those who have no formal background in urban forestry or Demand Side Management (DSM) utility practices." [from website]
