Good Roots

Alabama Power believes that vibrant communities and a healthy environment are important to the quality of life in Alabama. Trees are key to this. Recent studies show tree-shaded neighborhoods can be three to six degrees cooler than treeless ones. Shade helps save energy and makes our neighborhoods appealing and beautiful.

Creating a more scenic Alabama

 

The Good Roots grant program, an Alabama Power Foundation initiative, in partnership with the Alabama Urban Forestry Association and Alabama Forestry Commission, will supply up to $1,000 per grant to purchase trees for planting in cities, towns, communities and nonprofit organizations across the state.

 

To date, the foundation has awarded more than $650,000 in Good Roots grants, benefiting almost 700 cities, towns and nonprofit organizations. Good Roots trees have been planted at schools, churches, city parks and many other locations.

 

Together, the Foundation and our Good Roots partners are helping keep Alabama beautiful and vibrant.

In 2016, the Alabama Power Foundation awarded 38 Good Roots grants totaling more than $32,000.
