Want some free trees? You can get 10 by joining the Arbor Day Foundation during September.
The trees are part of the nonprofit foundation's "Trees for America" campaign, a program dedicated to environmental stewardship through the planting of trees.
The 10 trees are eastern rosebud, white pine, sugar maple, white flowering dogwood, pin oak, red maple, river birch, silver maple, northern red oak and Colorado blue spruce. The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10. The 6-12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or will be replaced free of charge. Planting instructions come with the trees. Members will also receive "The Tree Book" which has useful information.
The membership contribution is $10.
Never miss a local story.
