Free trees with Arbor Day membership
7/25/2014, 6 a.m.
Adults who join the Arbor Day Foundation in August can receive 10 free white flowering dogwood trees to add year-round color to their landscape.
Annual membership in the nonprofit is $10. The gift of trees is made possible through the foundation’s Trees for America campaign.
The 6- to 12-inch trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting in Georgia, which falls between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10. Planting instructions are enclosed with each shipment.
Matt Harris, the foundation’s chief executive, said the dogwood trees will add color and beauty to landscaping throughout the year with showy spring flowers, scarlet autumn foliage and red berries that attract songbirds in the winter.
New Arbor Day Foundation members also will 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 white flowering dogwoods, join at arborday.org/august or send a $10 membership contribution by Aug. 31 to Ten Free Dogwoods, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410.
