Celebrate the arrival of spring by planting trees, and the Arbor Day Foundation is making it easy for everyone to participate.
Join the Arbor Day Foundation in March 2011 and receive 10 white pine trees.
"White pines are such a versatile tree that adds beauty to your home and neighborhood and serves as a windbreak or a beautiful natural screen," said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. "They are fast-growing landscape trees with soft needles and graceful branching and will make a beautiful addition to any yard."
The trees are part of the nonprofit Foundation's Trees for America campaign.
The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting between, March 1 and May 31, with enclosed planting instructions. 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 with information about tree planting and care.
To become a member of the Foundation and receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to TEN FREE WHITE PINE TREES, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, Nebraska 68410, by March 31, 2011. Or join online at www.arborday.org/March.
