Celebrate National Arbor Day

Join the Arbor Day Foundation and receive 10 free trees

The ideal way to celebrate National Arbor Day is to plant trees, and the Arbor Day Foundation wants people all across America to participate. As a way to celebrate, everyone who joins the nonprofit Foundation during the month of April will receive 10 free shade trees.

National Arbor Day and Michigan’s Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April, which is April 30 this year.

Everyone who joins the Arbor Day Foundation in April will receive the following shade trees: red oak, sugar maple, weeping willow, baldcypress, thornless honeylocust, pin oak, river birch, tuliptree, silver maple and red maple. The free trees are part of the nonprofit Foundations Trees for America campaign.

“The best way everyone can commemorate Arbor Day is to plant trees in communities all across America,” said John Rosenow, chief executive founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. “These trees will provide shade adn beauty year-round and magnificnet color in the fall.”

The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting in April of May with enclosed planting instructions. The 6 to 12 inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge.

“Planting a tree connects us directly to nature,” Rosenow said. “It’s the perfect activity for parents, grandparents and children to enjoy because trees will last for generations.”

To become a member of the Foundation and receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to TEN FREE SHADE TREES, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410, by April 30, 2010, or visit www.arborday.org/april.
