Free trees available
Each person who joins the National Arbor Day Foundation during April will receive 10 free shade trees as part of the nonprofit foundation's Trees for America campaign. Kansas' Arbor Day is celebrated April 28.
The ten shade trees are red oak, sugar maple, weeping willow, green ash, thornless honeylocust, pin oak, river birch, tuliptree, silver maple and red maple.
The trees will be shipped postpaid with enclosed planting instructions at the right time for planting them in April or May. The six- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge.
To become a member of the foundation and receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution by April 30 to: Ten Free Shade Trees, National Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410 or join online at arborday.org.
