Free trees offered through National Arbor Day Foundation

Ten free flowering trees will be given to each person who joins the National Arbor Day Foundation during the month of January. The free trees are part of the nonprofit Foundation’s “Trees for America” campaign. The 10 trees are two white flowering dogwoods, two flowering crabapples, two flowering pears, two Washington hawthorns and two American redbuds. “These compact trees were selected for planting in large or small spaces,” said Foundation president John Rosenow. “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 planting instructions. The six 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 bi-monthly publication, “Arbor Day,” and “The Tree Book” with information about tree 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 Avenue, Nebraska City, Neb. 68410, by Jan. 31.
