Arbor Day Foundation offers 10 free trees

Ten free flowering trees will be given to each person who joins the National Arbor Day Foundation during January.

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

The 10 trees are two white flowering dogwoods, two flowering crabapples, two Washington hawthorns, two American redbuds, and two Kousa dogwoods.

“These compact trees were selected for planting in large or small spaces,” John Rosenow, the Foundation’s president, said.

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

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

To become a member of the Foundation and to receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to Ten Free Flowering Trees, National Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by Jan. 31, or go online to
