DAYTON — Dayton Power and Light has extended the deadline for neighborhoods and small business groups to apply for 100 cherry trees as part of DP&L’s Right Tree Right Place campaign to provide DP&L customers with beautiful and utility-friendly trees they can plant around the Miami Valley.
The new deadline is Friday, Oct. 23.
The Right Tree Right Place program encourages DP&L customers to consider the impact on the safety and reliability of electric service when making decisions regarding tree selection and placement.
As part of the campaign, DP&L is partnering with Operation 1000 Cherry Tree project to help plant more than 100 cherry trees in and around Dayton, Ohio to repay the kindness shown to Japan following the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Subdivisions, homeowner/neighborhood groups and groups of small businesses (annual receipts less than $750,000) may apply. The trees (one per residence or business) must be planted in publicly visible areas and comply with community restrictions. Applicants must be DP&L customers and own their property.
