Illinois residents can receive 10 free flowering trees by joining the Arbor Day Foundation during January. New members of the nonprofit foundation will receive two white flowering dogwoods, two flowering crabapples, two Washington hawthorns, two American redbuds and two goldenraintrees. It is part of the foundation's Trees for America campaign. The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting 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 for free. Members also receive a subscription to the foundation's bimonthly publication, "Arbor Day" and "The Tree Book," which includes information about tree planting and care. To become a member and to receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to TEN FREE FLOWERING TREES, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, Neb 68410 by Jan. 31. Illinois residents can also join online at arborday.org/january.
