The Arbor Day Foundation is offering 10 free white flowering dogwood trees to new members who join the national nonprofit with a $10 donation during the month of August.
The group’s Trees for America campaign allows members to add color to their landscape year-round, the Arbor Day Foundation said in a release.
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,” Arbor Day Foundation CEO Matt Harris said in a statement.
New members of the Arbor Day 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.
