Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion Of­fer­ing 10 Free Trees

Escalon Times - - LIVING -

The Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion will brighten up your fall by of­fer­ing five free crape­myr­tle trees or other trees se­lected for your area when you join the Foun­da­tion in Oc­to­ber.

The free trees are part of the non­profit Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion’s Trees for Amer­ica cam­paign, a pro­gram ded­i­cated to en­vi­ron­men­tal stew­ard­ship through tree plant­ing.

“Crape­myr­tles are es­pe­cially beau­ti­ful in the fall and were se­lected for this cam­paign be­cause of their el­e­gant color and form,” said Matt Harris, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion. Crape­myr­tles make an at­trac­tive ad­di­tion to the home land­scape.”

The trees will be shipped post­paid be­tween Nov. 1 and Dec. 10, at the right time for plant­ing. 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.

New mem­bers of the Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion also re­ceive The Tree Book, which in­cludes in­for­ma­tion about tree plant­ing and care.

To re­ceive the free crape­myr­tle trees, send a $10 mem­ber­ship con­tri­bu­tion to Five Crape­myr­tles, Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion, 100 Ar­bor Ave., Ne­braska City, NE 68410, by Oct. 31, 2015, or join online at ar­bor­day.org/ oc­to­ber.
