Right Tree, Right Place Contributions

DP&L is investing in the long-term sustainability of the Miami Valley.

Right Tree, Right Place contributions aim to support the environment and beautification of our neighborhoods and communities while educating customers about the importance of planting smart with utilities in mind.

Since 2015, DP&L has made a significant impact on the tree canopy in the Miami Valley through a variety of community outreach initiatives, not only by donating trees but also funding the removal of trees that pose a risk to our electrical system.
