Spring is in the air

The public is invited to join the Arbor Day Foundation to celebrate the arrival of spring. New members will receive 10 free white pine trees to plant.

“White pines are a versatile tree that will break heavy winds and add beauty to your home,” said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “These fast-growing landscape trees are known for their soft needles and graceful branching, making them an ideal addition to any yard.”

The free trees are part of the nonprofit foundation’s Trees for America campaign.

The trees will be shipped postpaid with enclosed planting instructions at the right time for planting, between Saturday, March 1 and Saturday, May 31. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow, or they will be replaced free of charge.

Arbor Day Foundation members also receive a subscription to Arbor Day, the foundation’s bimonthly publication, and The Tree Book, which contains information about tree planting and care.
