Arbor Day Foundation giving away trees with membership

August 02, 2013

NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. — Anyone who joins the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation in August with a $10 donation will receive 10 free white flowering dogwood trees through the foundation's Trees for America campaign.

The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting in each member's area, which falls between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge. Planting instructions are enclosed with each shipment of trees.

"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," said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the foundation.

New members of the foundation 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 white flowering dogwood trees, send a $10 membership contribution to Ten Free Dogwoods, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by Aug. 31, or join online at arborday.org/august.
