Receive 10 free trees by joining the Arbor Day Foundation in August

Spruce up your landscape by joining the Arbor Day Foundation in August.

The Arbor Day Foundation has announced that everyone who joins the foundation with a $10 donation will receive 10 free Norway spruce trees or 10 white flowering dogwood trees through the Foundation’s Trees for America campaign.

The trees will be shipped postpaid between October 15 and December 10, depending on the
right time for planting in each member’s area. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow
or they will be replaced free of charge, states a press release from the Arbor Day Foundation.

“Norway spruce trees truly provide year-round beauty for any landscape,” said Matt Harris, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “White flowering dogwood trees will add color and beauty to your yard throughout the year, with their showy spring flowers, scarlet autumn foliage and red berries that attract songbirds in the winter.”

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 Norway spruce trees, join online at arborday.org/august or send a $10 membership contribution by August 31 to:

Ten Free Norway Spruces OR
Ten Free White Dogwood
