Are there subsidies or other programs that can be used to plant trees for energy conservation?

 Some communities, businesses or state agencies may offer subsidies for tree planting in specific situations. Contact your local office of the State Forestry Commission to see if programs like this exist in your area. You can also check with the USDA NRCS at the local USDA Service Center near you and use their tools available online such as the Conservation Energy Estimators to look at ways to save energy at home and on farms (e.g. animal operations).
