Arbor Day Foundation Offers 10 Free Blue Spruce Trees
February 6, 2008 - Now's the time to start thinking about the spring planting season, and the Arbor Day Foundation is offering an ideal way for everyone to plant trees when the weather warms up.
Every person from Indiana who joins the Arbor Day Foundation in February will receive 10 free Colorado blue spruce trees.
The 10 free Colorado blue spruce trees are part of the nonprofit Foundation's Trees for America campaign.
"Colorado blue spruces, with their silver blue-green color and attractive conical shape, will give year-round beauty to homes in Indiana," said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. "They will also add to the proud heritage of Indiana's 57 Tree City USA communities. For more than 30 years, Tree City USA has supported community forestry across Indiana,. and planting these graceful trees will add to this vital tree-planting tradition."
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.
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 to receive the trees, send a $10 contribution to Ten Free Colorado Blue Spruce Trees, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410, by February 29, 2008, or go to www.arborday.org.
