Arbor foundation offers free trees to those who join this month
Ten free flowering trees will be given to everyone who joins the National Arbor Day Foundation this month.
The free trees are part of the nonprofit foundation's Trees for America campaign.
The 10 trees include two each of white flowering dogwoods, flowering crabapples, Washington hawthorns, American redbuds and goldenraintrees.
"These compact trees were selected for planting in large or small spaces," said John Rosenow, the foundation's president. "They will give your home the beauty of lovely pink, white and yellow flowers, and also provide winter berries and nesting sites for songbirds."
The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting between Feb. 1 and May 31 with enclosed instructions. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge.
Members also receive a subscription to the Foundation's bimonthly publication, Arbor Day, and "The Tree Book" with information about planting and care.
To become a member of the foundation and to receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to: TEN FREE FLOWERING TREES, National Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave, Nebraska City, NE 68410, by Jan. 31. Or go online to arborday.org.
