Spruce up your land­scape by join­ing the Arbor Day Foun­da­tion this month.

Every­one who joins the non­profit Arbor Day Foun­da­tion in Au­gust with a $10 do­na­tion will re­ceive 10 free Colorado blue spruce trees or 10 white flow­er­ing dog­wood trees through the Foun­da­tion’s Trees for Amer­ica cam­paign.

The trees will be shipped post­paid be­tween Oct. 15 and Dec. 10, de­pend­ing on the right time for plant­ing in each mem­ber’s area. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guar­an­teed to grow or they will be re­placed free of charge.

To re­ceive the free Colorado blue spruce trees, send a $10 mem­ber­ship con­tri­bu­tion to: Ten Free Blue Spruces or Ten Free Dog­wood, Arbor Day Foun­da­tion, 100 Arbor Ave., Ne­braska City, NE 68410, by Fri­day, Aug. 31 or join on­line at ar­bor­day. org/au­gust.

“Colorado blue spruce trees truly pro­vide year­round beauty for any land­scape,” said Matt Har­ris, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Arbor Day Foun­da­tion. “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.”

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