The Arbor Day Foundation is making it easier for everyone to celebrate the arrival of spring through planting trees.
Join the Arbor Day Foundation in March and receive 10 free white flowering dogwood trees.
“White flowering dogwoods will add year-round beauty to your home and neighborhood,” said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Dogwoods have showy spring flowers, scarlet autumn foliage and red berries that will attract songbirds all winter.”
The free 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, which contains information about tree planting and care.
The deadline to become a member and receive free trees is March 30. Visit www.arbor day.org/March.
