Join Arbor Day Foundation and get 10 trees

Here's a way to get into the mood for spring planting: Join the Arbor Day Foundation and receive 10 trees to plant when the weather turns warm.

Every person from Minnesota who joins the Arbor Day Foundation in February 2011 will receive 10 Colorado blue spruce trees.

"Planting Colorado blue spruce trees will add beauty to your landscape in Minnesota with their blue-green hue and distinctive shape," said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. "These trees will also add to the proud heritage of Minnesota's 104 Tree City USA communities. For more than 30 years, Tree City USA has supported community forestry across Minnesota, and planting these beautiful trees will add to this important tree-planting tradition."

The 10 Colorado blue spruce 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 the Foundation's colorful bimonthly publication, Arbor Day, 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 COLORADO BLUE SPRUCE TREES, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410, by February 28, 2011, or go to
