The Arbor Day Foundation is giving away ten flowering trees in January to anyone who joins the nonprofit organization for $10. As part of part of the foundation’s Trees for America campaign, new members will receive two Sargent crabapples, three American redbuds, two Washington hawthorns, and three white flowering dogwoods.
“These beautiful trees will beautify your home with lovely flowers of pink, yellow, and white colors,” said Matt Harris, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “These trees are perfect for large and small spaces, and they will provide food and habitat for songbirds.”
At the appropriate time for planting, the trees will be shipped postpaid between Feb. 1 and May 31 along with planting instructions. The 6- to 12-inch-tall trees are guaranteed to grow and will be replaced free of charge if they do not.
Members will also receive a subscription to the Foundation’s bimonthly publication, “Arbor Day,” and “The Tree Book,” which includes information about tree planting and care.
Anyone interested can join online or send $10 to “Ten Free Flowering Trees, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410” by Jan. 31.
