Join the Arbor Day Foundation in August
Spruce up your landscape by joining the Arbor Day Foundation in August.
Everyone who joins the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation with a $10 donation will receive 10 free Colorado blue spruce trees through the Foundation’s Trees for America campaign.
The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting in each member’s area, which falls between October 15 and December 10. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge.
“Colorado blue spruce trees provide homeowners with numerous benefits,” said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “They can be used as an energy-saving windbreak, for privacy, as ornamental trees and even as living Christmas trees out in the yard. They truly provide year-round beauty for any landscape.”
New members of the Arbor Day Foundation will also receive The Tree Book, which includes information about tree planting and care, and a subscription to Arbor Day, the Foundation’s bimonthly publication.
To receive the free Colorado blue spruce trees, send a $10 membership contribution to Ten Free Blue Spruces, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by August 31, 2013, or join online at arborday.org/august.

Everyone from Michigan who becomes a member of the Arbor Day Foundation in September will receive 10 free trees as part of the Foundation’s Trees for America campaign.
Trees for America is a program dedicated to environmental stewardship through the planting of trees by the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation.
The 10 trees are eastern redbud, white pine, sugar maple, white flowering dogwood, pin oak, red maple, river birch, silver maple, northern red oak, and Colorado blue spruce.
“These trees were selected to provide benefits every season of the year in Michigan: lovely spring flowers, cool summer shade, spectacular autumn colors, and winter berries and nesting sites for songbirds,” said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Foundation. “They will also add to the proud heritage of Michigan’s 119 Tree City USA communities. For more than 30 years, Tree City USA has supported community forestry across Michigan, and planting these trees will make this tree-planting tradition even stronger.”
The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting, between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10. The 6-to-12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge. Planting instructions are enclosed with each shipment of trees.
