Join Arbor Day Foundation, receive free white pine trees

The Arbor Day Foundation is making it easy for everyone to celebrate the arrival of spring by planting trees.

Join the Arbor Day Foundation in March 2013 and receive 10 free white pine trees.

“White pines are a versatile tree that will break heavy winds and add beauty to your home,” said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “These fast-growing growing landscape trees are known for their soft needles and graceful branching, making them an ideal fit for any yard.”

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

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.

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

To become a member of the Foundation and receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to Ten Free White Pine Trees, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, Neb. 68410, by March 30, 2013. Or join online at
