Through Trees for America, everyone is encouraged to plant trees for the benefit of the environment and quality of life. With one million members, the Arbor Day Foundation is the nation’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to planting trees.
“Arizona cypress trees can be used as an ornamental tree, as a windbreak or privacy screen or as a living Christmas tree in your landscape,” said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “These trees will also add to the proud heritage of California’s 143 Tree City USA communities. For the last 36 years, Tree City USA has supported effective urban forest management across California, and planting these trees will enhance the state’s tree-planting tradition.”
The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10. 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 also 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 Sept. 30 or join online at arborday.org/september.
