Staff report



NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. — The Arbor Day Foundation has announced that anyone who joins the foundation in February will receive 10 free Norway spruce trees or 10 free redbud trees to plant when the weather turns warm.

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

“These trees will help beautify your home for many years to come,” said Matt Harris, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “The trees will also add to the proud heritage of your state’s existing Tree City USA communities.”

The Tree City USA program has supported community forestry throughout the country for the past 40 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.

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

To become a member and receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to Ten Free Norway Spruce Trees or Ten Free Eastern Redbud Trees, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by Feb. 28, or visit arborday.org/february.
