Residents of Oregon can ring in the New Year with five free crape-myrtle trees by joining the Arbor Day Foundation any time during January 2013.
“These small flowering trees will provide any landscape in Oregon with a splash of color for much of the year,” said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Members will experience pink and red flowers in the spring, green flowers in the summer and a mix of red, orange and yellow during autumn.”
The free trees are part of the nonprofit foundation’s Trees for America campaign.
The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting, between Feb. 1 and April 30, with enclosed planting instructions. The 6- to 12-inch tall trees are guaranteed to grow, or they will be replaced free of charge.
Members will also receive a subscription to the foundation’s colorful bimonthly publication, “Arbor Day,” and “The Tree Book,” which includes information about tree planting and care.
To receive the free trees, send a $10 membership contribution to 5 CRAPEMYRTLES, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by Jan. 31. Oregon residents can also join online at arborday.org/january.
