Free trees being offered

Ten free trees will be given to each person from Kentucky who joins the National Arbor Day Foundation during September. The free trees are part of the nonprofit foundation’s Trees for America campaign.

The 10 trees are the eastern redbud, white pine, sugar maple, pin oak, red maple, silver maple, white flowering dogwood, northern red oak, river birch, and Colorado blue spruce.

The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10 with planting instructions. The six- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge.

Members also receive The Tree Book, which includes information about tree planting and care.

To receive the free trees, send a $10 membership contribution to Ten Trees, National Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410 by Sept. 30, or visit www.arborday.org.
