Join Arbor Day Foundation to receive free trees

Add color to the fall by becoming a member of the Arbor Day Foundation during October and receive five free crapemyrtle trees. The free trees are part of the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation's Trees for America campaign, a program dedicated to environmental stewardship through the planting of trees.
"Crapemyrtles were selected for this campaign because of their elegant color and form," said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Crapemyrtles make an attractive addition to the home landscape."
The trees will be shipped postpaid between November 1 and December 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 October 30, 2009, or join online at www.arborday.org.
