Receive 10 Free Arizona Cypress Trees
When You Join the Arbor Day Foundation in September
Everyone from Arizona who joins the Arbor Day Foundation in September will receive 10 free Arizona cypress trees as part of the Foundation's Trees for America campaign.
Trees for America is a program of the Arbor Day Foundation that encourages anyone to help the environment by planting trees. The Arbor Day Foundation is the largest nonprofit organization in the United States dedicated to planting trees.
"Arizona cypress trees add beauty to landscapes with their blue-green foliage, are drought-tolerant, and they can be used as an individual ornamental tree, as a windbreak or privacy screen or as a living Christmas tree," said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. "They will also add to the proud heritage of Arizona's 21 Tree City USA communities. For 34 years, Tree City USA has supported community forestry across Arizona, and planting these trees will enhance this tree-planting tradition."
The trees will be shipped postpaid between Oct. 15 and Dec. 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 will receive The Tree Book, which includes information about tree planting and care.
To receive the free Arizona cypress trees, send a $10 membership contribution to Ten Arizona Cypresses, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by September 30, 2010, or join online at www.arborday.org/september.
