Arbor Day group offers free trees
Everyone who joins the Arbor Day Foundation during August 2008 will receive 10 free Colorado blue spruce trees.
The free trees are part of the nonprofit foundation's Trees for America campaign, a program dedicated to environmental stewardship through the planting of trees.
The trees will be shipped postpaid between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10, at the right time for planting. The 6-to-12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge.
Members of the Arbor Day Foundation will also receive "The Tree Book," which includes information about tree planting and care.
To receive the free trees, send a $10 membership contribution to Ten Blue Spruces, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by Aug. 31 or join online at www.arborday. org.
