Spring planting is near
Get into the mood for spring planting: Join the Arbor Day Foundation and receive 10 free trees to plant when the weather turns warm.
Everyone joining in February will receive 10 free Colorado blue spruce trees.
“Planting Colorado blue spruce trees will add beauty to your landscape in New Mexico with their blue-green hue and distinctive shape,” said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. “These trees will also add to the proud heritage of New Mexico’s 9 Tree City USA communities.”
The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting, between March 1 and May 31, with enclosed planting instructions. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow, or they will be replaced free of charge.
Members also receive a subscription to the Foundation’s colorful bimonthly publication, Arbor Day, and The Tree Book with information about tree planting and care.
To become a member, send a $10 contribution to Ten Free Colorado Blue Spruce Trees, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410, by February 28, or go to www.arborday.org/February.
