Shade Tree Project

Every year during May, OMU offers over 100 free shade trees on a first come basis to OMU electric and natural gas customers. Red Sunset Maple and Northern Red Oak were offered this past spring.

Properly placed and planted shade trees not only beautify a property, they can also help save 10%-50% in air conditioning costs. Look for details in OMU’s March newsletter, online at and in the Mitchell County Press News.
