Vermonters who join the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation with a $10 donation will receive 10 free Colorado blue spruce trees through the foundation’s Trees for Vermont campaign.
The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for autumn planting in Vermont starting Oct. 15. The six- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge.
“Colorado blue spruce trees provide Vermont homeowners with numerous benefits,” said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “They can be used as an energy-saving windbreak, for privacy, as ornamental trees and even as living Christmas trees out in the yard. They truly provide year-round beauty for any landscape.”
New Vermont members of the Arbor Day Foundation will also receive "The Tree Book", which includes information about tree planting and care, and Arbor Day, the Foundation’s bimonthly publication.
To receive the free Colorado blue spruce trees, send a $10 contribution to Ten Blue Spruces, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, Neb. 68410, by Aug. 31.
