Arbor Day Foundation Offers Free Colorado Blue Spruce Trees

Ten free Colorado blue spruce trees will be given to each person from Connecticut who joins The National Arbor Day Foundation during February 2007.

The free trees are part of the nonprofit Foundation’s Trees for America campaign.

“Colorado blue spruces, with their silver blue-green color and attractive conical shape, will give year-round beauty to homes in Connecticut,” said John Rosenow, Arbor Day Foundation president.  “They can be used as individual ornamentals, an energy-saving windbreak, a privacy screen, or as living Christmas trees.  They’ll also add to the proud heritage of  Connecticut’s 12 Tree City USA communities.  For three decades, Tree City USA has supported community forestry across Connecticut, and planting these graceful trees will add to this vital tree-planting tradition.”

The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting between March 1 and May 31 with enclosed planting instructions.  The six to twelve 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 of the Foundation and receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to Ten Free Colorado Blue Spruce Trees, National Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410, by February 28, 2007.  Or join online at www.arborday.org.
