Ten free trees, autumn classics, will be given to each person who joins the National Arbor Day Foundation during October.
The free trees are part of the nonprofit Foundations Trees for America campaign.
The 10 trees are two sugar maples, scarlet oak, sweetgum, red oak, silver maple, white dogwood, Washington hawthorn, and two red maples.
These trees will produce vibrant red, orange, yellow, scarlet and purple leaves in the fall, John Rosenow, the Foundations president, said.
The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting between Nov. 1 and Dec. 10 with enclosed planting instructions. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow, or they will be replaced free of charge.
To receive the free trees, send a $10 membership contribution to Autumn Classic Trees, National Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by Oct. 31, or join online at www.arborday.org.
