Residents of Kentucky will receive 10 free flowering trees by joining the Arbor Day Foundation this month.
By joining the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation, new members will get two white flowering dogwoods, two flowering crabapples, two Washington hawthorns, two American redbuds and two goldenrain trees.
“These beautiful trees will give your home in Kentucky lovely flowers with pink, yellow and white colors,” said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “These trees are perfect for large and small spaces, and they will provide food and habitat for songbirds.”
Trees will be shipped between Feb. 1 and May 31, with enclosed planting instructions. The 6- to 12-inch tall trees are guaranteed to grow, or they will be replaced.
Members will also receive a subscription to the Foundation’s bimonthly publication, Arbor Day, and The Tree Book, which includes information about tree planting and care.
