Winnebago residents and surrounding communities can obtain up to ten free flowering trees if they join the Arbor day Foundation during the month of January. The free trees are a part of the Foundation’s Trees for America campaign.
Once a person becomes a member of the Foundation, they will get two Sargent crabapple trees, three American redbuds , two Washington redbuds, and three white flowering dogwoods.
Officials say that the trees will be shipped postpaid just in time for the planting season which is between February 1st and May 31st. with the enclosed planting instructions. The seedlings will be up to 12 inches tall and are guarenteed to grow or they will be replaced at no charge.
Officials say that members will reieve a subscription to the Foundation’s bi-monthly publication, Arbor Day and the Tree Book, which includes information about tree planting and care of trees.
Officials say that interested parties should contact the Foundation at www.arborday.org/january.
