Spruce up your landscape by joining the foundation

Everyone who joins the non­profit Arbor Day Foundation with a $10 donation will receive 10 free Colorado blue 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.

“Colorado blue spruce trees truly provide year-round beauty for any landscape,” said Matt Har­ris, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “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 Colorado blue spruce trees, send a $10 member­ship contribution to:

Ten Free Blue Spruces OR Ten Free Dogwood, Arbor Day Foun­dation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by August 31, 2017, or join online at [http://arbor­day.org/august].
