Arbor Foundation offers trees to new members
Ten free white pine trees will be given to each person who joins The National Arbor Day Foundation during September.
The free trees are part of the nonprofit Foundation's Trees for America campaign.
"The white pines will add year-round beauty to your home and neighborhood," John Rosenow, the foundation's president, said. "They are fast-growing landscape trees with soft needles and graceful branching. You can use them as specimen trees or as a privacy screen or windbreak ... even as a beautiful sheared hedge."
The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10 with enclosed planting instructions. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or will be replaced free of charge.
Members also receive a subscription to Arbor Day, the foundation's bimonthly publication, and "The Tree Book" with information about tree planting and care.
