Free blue spruce trees available from Arbor Day Foundation

February 06, 2013

Joining the Arbor Day Foundation is an ideal way to get in the mood for spring planting. Anyone in Maryland who joins the foundation in February will receive 10 free Colorado blue spruce trees to plant when the weather turns warm. 

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

The Tree City USA program has supported community forestry throughout the country for more than 35 years.

The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting, between March 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.

To become a member of the foundation and receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to 10 Free Colorado Blue Spruce Trees, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by Feb. 28, or go to arborday.org/february.

Members also receive a subscription to the foundation’s bimonthly publication, Arbor Day, and The Tree Book, which contains information about planting and care.

“The blue-green hue and distinctive shape of Colorado blue spruce trees will help beautify Maryland for many years to come,” said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “The trees will also add to the proud heritage of Maryland’s existing Tree City USA communities.”
