Dear Editor:

The Arbor Day Foundation is making it easy for everyone to celebrate the arrival of spring by planting trees.  Join the Arbor Day Foundation in March 2017 and receive ten free white pine trees or ten white flowering dogwood trees.

White pine trees or white flowering dogwoods will add beauty to a home throughout the year.  Dogwoods are known for their showy spring flowers and red berries that attract songbirds during winter. White pine trees are fast-growing landscape trees that will break heavy winds, making them an ideal addition to any yard.

The free trees are part of the nonprofit Foundation’s ‘Trees for America’ campaign.

With planting instructions included, the trees will be shipped at the right time for planting, between March 1 and May 31.  The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed
to grow or they will be replaced free of charge.

Arbor Day Foundation members also receive a subscription to Arbor Day, the Foundation’s bimonthly publication, and The Tree Book, which contains information about tree planting and care.

To become a member of the Foundation and receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to TEN FREE WHITE PINE or 10 FREE DOGWOOD TREES, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410, by March 31, 2017. Or join online at arborday.org/march.

Sincerely,

Matt Harris, Chief Executive

Arbor Day Foundation
